Diamondbacks - Signed DaVanon
Arizona Diamondbacks - Signed OF Jeff DaVanon to a 1-year contract worth $525,000.
This contract has playing time incentives that would more than double the base salary. DaVanon has been rumored as signing with the Diamondbacks since he was dumped by the Angels after the season, but he failed a physical (the why hasn’t leaked out as far as I know). DaVanon’s a good 4th outfielder who isn’t a bad stopgap starter but it’s hard to tell without the knowledge of what’s wrong with him physically and whether or not it’s the reason he was so terrible in 2005. There’s been a lot of speculation that DaVanon has a shoulder problem, which if bad enough could really sap that projection below, but I don’t know if that’s just simply a rumor or not.
