More Signings!

Seattle brought back reliever Mark Deschamp today, signing the 33-year old to a 3 year deal that will pay the righty $5.25 million per year. Deschamp appeared in 98 games last year for Walla Walla and Seattle, posting a 5-5 record with 4 saves and a 2.80 ERA.

Walla Walla picked up a pair of hurlers, signing both to two-year deals for $1.2 million per year. The first is Elton Molina, who spent the last three years with Walla Walla. Last year, he appeared in 67 games, posting a 4.27 ERA.

The other pitcher signed by Walla Walla is closer Tom Porter. Tom has been pitching with Houston for the last two years where he picked up 29 saves over that time period. Tom has three championships under his belt with Stockholm/Florida.

Denver resigned C Jose Quesada to a two year deal. Quesada, who will earn $3.5 million per year, has been Denver's regular catcher for the last three seasons. Last year he hit .246 with 11 home runs and 57 RBI. Quesada was an Adams League All-Star in 2006.

RF Christopher Hartsell has returned home to South Bay, the franchise that he has been with since the league started. He returns for one year with a $500,000 contract. Hartsell has been a Zotti-League All-Star for the past four years and has four Cecil Cups to his credit. Last year, Hartsell hit .300 with 9 home runs and 65 RBI.

Lastly, MR James Manning returns to Brooklyn, after spending a year in the River Cities minor league system. Manning signs a deal worth $350,000 for one season.

Five and a quarter million for an admitted good middle reliever.

Oy!

I swear I'm going through this whole free agent period without signing anyone.
 
I'm honest enough to admit that I offered Deschamp more as an impending free agent before the end of last season, but he wouldn't take it then. His loss, I guess.
