Padres resign Josh Johnson

This is the sort of deal I thought Brett Anderson would get. Seems like a great low-risk, high-upside signing for the Padres.

Edit: Title fixed. Jim.

Dodgers sign Brett Anderson for $10 million

Having paid the Marlins to take right-hander Dan Haren off their hands the Dodgers have replaced him in the rotation with left-hander Brett Anderson.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN.com it’s a one-year deal worth $10 million in guaranteed money, plus $4 million in potential incentives. Haren had one year and $10 million remaining on his contract when the Dodgers shipped him and the money to cover his entire salary to Miami.

Wow, a million dollars per start?

Sources: Cubs in talks to acquire Nationals’ Jordan Zimmermann | Chicago Sun-Times

Another report says the clubs aren’t dealing. Brett Anderson would be a great buy-low pickup for a smart team.

Zimmermann, 28, would be a younger, potentially less-expensive alternative to the higher-end free agents on the market this off-season, though the player package to acquire him would have to include at least one of their touted young middle infielders, sources say.

One source said the teams have enough mutual interest that names have been discussed. Another said he expected the Cubs to complete the deal – along with Cardinals free agent Justin Masterson, who blamed minor injuries for season-long struggles in 2014 after a 2013 All-Star season.

Masterson is said to be willing to sign a low-cost one-year deal for a chance to prove himself in spring training, possibly similar to the $1 million deal the Cubs gave James McDonald last winter.

Lester, considered by some executives the most valuable free agent starter on the market, is still in play for the Cubs, say insiders, along with buy-low/upside guys such as Rockies free agent Brett Anderson, veteran bench guys such as Athletics free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes and bullpen help.

Anderson’s 2015 option not picked up by Rockies | rockies.com

It’s crazy to think he’s only 26 It seems like he’s been hurt a lot longer than that.
