Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Over at Scout they are talking about a possible deal with LaRoche going to the Angels. I'm not so sure what I think about it. If it brings back Ervin Santana or someone of the like then I'm all for it, but if all we get is relief pitching I would be hesitant.

If it's Ervin Santana, get the deal done. If not, be hesitant.

Braves sign Tanyon Sturtze

Quote:
The Atlanta Braves signed right-hander Tanyon Sturtze to a one-year contract Sunday on the eve of the winter meetings, hoping he will be able to come back from rotator cuff surgery.

Sturtze is guaranteed $750,000 and would make another $350,000 if he spends one day on the Braves' 25-man roster. He also could earn another $450,000 in bonuses based on the number of appearances he makes as a starter and reliever.

The 36-year-old Sturtze missed most of last season with the New York Yankees after undergoing surgery on May 23. He had a 7.59 ERA in 18 appearances before going on the disabled list.

Sturtze has pitched 269 games during a big league career that began in 1995 with the Chicago Cubs and includes stints with the Chicago White Sox, Texas, Tampa Bay and Toronto. He is 40-44 with three saves and a 5.21 ERA.

Sturtze spent the last three years working mostly out of the Yankees' bullpen in middle and long relief. He made $1.5 million this past season.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Very risky signing. How you can guarantee someone coming off rotator cuff surgery any amount of money is beyond me.
