James Loney signs minor league deal with Texas Rangers

James Loney signs minor league deal with Texas Rangers

After a replacement level tenure with the Mets, Loney seems likely to be penciled in as the starting first baseman for the 2017 Round Rock Express. Veteran first baseman James Loney is taking his talents back out west, as he’s agreed to a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers. The deal with Texas, which likely includes an invitation to spring training, pays Loney a $1 million salary if he’s in the majors in 2017. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Loney who grew up in Texas, not far outside of Houston. After starting first baseman Lucas Duda went down with a stress fracture in his...

A’s happy to welcome back ‘overlooked’ Casilla

On the day reliever Santiago Casilla officially joined the A's, he recited an old saying: "It's always good to go home, and I'm happy to get this new opportunity with the Athletics." The Giants bade farewell to one of their bullpen stalwarts without making him an offer, instead signing Mark Melancon to close and choosing to hand the setup jobs to younger, cheaper relievers on staff. Giants fans could not wait for Casilla to clear out his locker after he blew nine saves and pouted about the way manager Bruce Bochy used him. Across the bay, the A's saw Casilla's messy denouement in San...

Alejandro De Aza inks minor league deal with Athletics

Alejandro De Aza inks minor league deal with Athletics

The outfielder had a less-than-stellar year with the Mets. After a forgettble season with the Mets in 2016, Alejandro De Aza has signed a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training with the Oakland Athletics. The A’s will be De Aza’s fourth team since 2014. He will most likely compete for a reserve role on the bench with the A’s. De Aza signed a one-year, $5.75 million deal in the 2015 offseason, expecting to serve as the primary center fielder in 2016. That plan was quickly thrown out the window once Yoenis Cespedes fell unexpectedly into the Mets’ lap and pushed De...
