Since it was his first time through the arb process I suspect it came as a bit of a shock to him. He'll get used to it I'm sure. But if the president of the team acted like Levine did I'd be pretty miffed too. That's some bizarre behaviour.
kinda surprising to me that he would lose actually...
3 time all-star, ungodly k/9, massive workload pitching wherever they need him (including closing)
not sure what else he could do to prove his case.
Jered Weaver signs with the Padres. 1 year deal, Weaver will receive 3 million, and it includes a 250K assignment bonus as well.
Diamondbacks sign Jorge De La Rosa to a minor league deal, the lefty will fight for a bullpen spot, and will receive 2.25 million if he makes the team, with 600K in reliever incentives, or 1M in starter incentives if they move him to the rotation.
Man, the Padres are going to be horrible.
De La Rosa's velocity really dropped off but he still has swing and miss stuff. With that slider/splitter of his he could be a really effective bullpen weapon for AZ.
on personal level..its a good move for Weiters...doesn't have to uproot his family.
White Sox release Brett Lawrie.
Man...has his stock dropped.
