    The Brewers have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with free-agent right-hander Neftali Feliz, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports (Twitter links). Feliz is expected to close for Milwaukee and will be guaranteed $5.35MM, per Passan. His contract also contains incentives, which can boost the value of the deal to $6.85MM. Feliz was first rumored to be working toward a deal with Milwaukee over the weekend.
    Nice move for Milwaukee. They'll be able to flip him at the deadline.

    The Yankees expect to go to arbitration with right-hander Dellin Betances http://sprtsnt.ca/2jcYitp

    And teams will be hitting a lot of shots to the OF for XBHs. Kim/Jones/Smith/Trumbo would be the worst defensive outfield in the majors..especially as Adam Jones is losing a step in CF.

    Yeah really like the signing. Likely will use him as their closer and then flip him at the deadline to a contender. Feliz was really good last season. Shocked it took a team this long to sign him.

    Feliz wasn't much above average last year (and that's giving him some benefit of the doubt by not looking at WAR). He was also terrible in the 2nd half. It's probably a fair deal, and a fantastic opportunity for him, but I'm really not shocked that he was still unsigned.

    Would you rather have Morales at 3/33, or Trumbo at 3/37?

    I'd say that's a solid deal for the O's.

    Well I'm convinced we gave Morales that deal in order to get Gurriel because they have the same agent and the signings were announced at the same time.

    As Org noted, it depends where they play him, it's a decent deal.

    Good lord do the Rockies look stupid. Could have had Trumbo or EE for less money than what they gave Desmond to play 1B.

    Definitely a good deal for the O's. I was expecting some team to give him at least 50 million
