Huge Free Agent signings!!!

 Tucson hit a few big FA's this season so far.. They managed to sign former Colorado 1B Matt Quirarte for a 5 yr 35.5 mil contract, RP Blaine Stanton 4yr 28mil contract with 4mil signing bonus and LR/SP Luther Alexander 2yr 14.6mil contract!!

Biggest FA so far for Norfolk would be the signing of 1B Gary Mateo by offering him 18.6 mil total over 4yrs.  Mateo  refused to be traded so he demanded to have a no trade clause in which the team accepted.

Las Vegas signed Bernie Alvarez!! The former 100mil man Alvarez was reduced to a 2yr contract totaling 17mil with a 4 mil signing bonus. The 38yr old will need to prove himself this season however I think this is his last contract ever.

Pitcher John Nakamura signed a 2 yr 9.6 mil deal with no trade clause with the Boston Beaneaters.

Hartford signed Catcher Taylor Person to a 1yr 3.8mil contract. Persons bat can be a huge help in the already POWER stuffed offense.

Six time AL All Star CF Albert O'brien signed a 5 yr 92.5 mil contract with the Montreal Shamrocks today! O'brien has won the MVP award in his career and Montreal hopes that the 30yr old CF can bring some luck to an already solid offense.

Huntington signed 1B Elvis Brooks to a total 3 yr 14.4 mil contract! This should be good for Brooks giving him a starting role on a team still needing some major help to contend.

Helena signed CF Rex Scott to a 2 yr 13.8mil contract! Scott could add some defense to the team as well as an ok bat.
