  1. Astros make a nice pickup; Royals don't

    Keith Law

    Jed Lowrie has agreed to terms with the Houston Astros and will be paid about what I expected, getting three years and $23 million with a fourth-year option for another $5 million. It's a deal that underpays him based on expected performance but pric...

  2. Chase Headley a solid re-sign for Yankees

    Keith Law

    The Yankees have all kinds of issues with their infield right now, and while re-signing Chase Headley -- which they did today for four years and $52 million -- doesn't solve the age problem, he's a very good (and slightly underrated, at least by fans...

  3. Liriano, Pirates take the safe route

    Keith Law

    The Pittsburgh Pirates' re-signing of Francisco Liriano looks like a preemptive strike to lock him up before Jon Lester signs some kind of seven-year, $172 million deal that sends the losers in that market scurrying for the next-best available lefty....

  4. Miller a good add for NYY, but four years?

    Keith Law

    The current version of Andrew Miller, who signed a four-year, $36 million deal with the New York Yankees on Friday, is one of the best relievers in baseball. But do you really want to give a 29-year-old reliever who has had two good seasons a contrac...

  5. Tomas definitely an upgrade for D-backs

    Keith Law

    The Arizona Diamondbacks' signing of Yasmany Tomas to a reported six-year, $68 million deal was a surprise only in terms of dollar amount, as earlier reports had him asking for $80-plus million -- who could blame him? -- which seemed like it might pu...

  6. White Sox bridging a gap with deals

    Keith Law

    The White Sox made two modest signings late last week, landing first baseman Adam LaRoche for two years, $25 million, and left-handed reliever Zach Duke for three years, $15 million. LaRoche fits well as a platoon DH/first baseman who can give Jose A...

  7. Red Sox get premium player at good price

    Keith Law

    I thought Hanley Ramirez might crack the $20 million per year mark given his age, offensive potential and the fact that a "down" year from him still produced 3.5 WAR -- and that's including his atrocious defense at shortstop. Assuming the reported de...

  8. Russell Martin will help Jays' young arms

    Keith Law

    The market for Russell Martin quickly established itself at the four-year mark for $70 million to $74 million, and the first team to commit to five years seemed likely to get the player. With the Dodgers and Cubs both involved and working with seemin...

  9. What the Red Sox get in Rusney Castillo

    Keith Law

    The Boston Red Sox signed Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo to a six-year, $72 million contract that set a record for an international free agent, reflecting the success of most of the Cuban position players who've come over so far, and the fact that ...

  10. Miguel Cabrera deal a disaster for Detroit

    Keith Law

    In analyzing Miguel Cabrera's enormous contract extension with the Detroit Tigers, I might as well just rerun my column on the Ryan Howard contract from April 2010: Teams just do not need to extend veteran players who are two years from free agency o...

  11. Jose Abreu's swing looks great

    Keith Law

    GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago White Sox signed Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu to a six-year, $68 million contract with some expectation that he'd be in their lineup this season, the sooner the better given the size of the investment. Given what I sa...

  12. Jimenez makes sense for the Orioles

    Keith Law

    The Baltimore Orioles get a mild bargain in Ubaldo Jimenez -- four years for close to $50 million -- by waiting out the market, although the loss of the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft stings, and Ubaldo himself is still a volatile asset. That sa...

  13. Phillies flounder with A.J. Burnett deal

    Keith Law

    Without context, the signing of A.J. Burnett looks like a coup for the Phillies. They signed one of the top dozen starters in the National League from 2013 to a one-year deal that, at $16 million, doesn't overpay based on his recent standard of produ...

  14. Quick thoughts on two Pittsburgh moves

    Keith Law

    The Pittsburgh Pirates made a pair of smaller moves on Wednesday, one great, one ... a little less so. Signing Charlie Morton to a three-year, $21 million extension that buys out two of his free agent years at a small discount to market makes a to...

  15. Granderson an obvious upgrade for Mets

    Keith Law

    The New York Mets' four-year, $60 million deal with Curtis Granderson addresses a very dire need, as their 2013 corner outfielders ranked somewhere between leeching and homeopathy on the effectiveness scale. Even if Granderson, recovered from two fra...

  16. Cano improves Mariners, but enough?

    Keith Law

    The contract that will send Robinson Cano to the Mariners is absurdly long, but $24 million a year is very reasonable for a player who's the best in the game at his position and regularly among the top five in his league. He fills a general hole for ...
