Signings Update

Tejada moves in with SFG
Couple signings occured today, so let's recap some of the action:
  • The San Francisco Giants reacted quickly to the news that infielder Juan Uribe was leaving to the Dodgers, as they signed short-stop Miguel Tejada to a 1-year deal worth $6.5M as well as re-signed outfield Pat Burrell.  Tejada played in 59 games for the San Diego Padres last year, after being traded by the Baltimore Orioles.  The 36-year hit .268 with 8 HR in those games, so the bat still seems to have some pop. As for Burrell, after being signed to the Giants, he hit .266 with 18 HR and 51 RBI as well as posting a .364 OBP.  He was one of the big reasons the Giants won the title, and is now inked to an incentive-laden one-year pact.
  • The New York Yankees resigned reliever/spot-starter Sergio Mitre to a 1-year deal worth $900K.  Mitre posted a 3.33 ERA in 27 games dispite a miniscule 4.8 K/9.  He will serve as a long-reliever who can occasionally spot start.
