The Rays signed a couple of big names and one new Ray to one year deals to avoid going to the arbitration table with these players. B.J. Upton, David Price and Burke Badenhop all signed deals today.
B.J. Upton got the biggest pay day although he’s the furthers along in his MLB career. He’ll be paid $7 million. David Price will get $4.35 million and reliever Burke Badenhop will get just over one million. I like the Price deal a ton but I think that’s a little too much for Upton. Still, I’ll take it.
J.P. Howell signed yesterday so that leaves Jeff Niemann as the lone arbitration eligible player to sign.
