Hey all you wild and crazy guys! Check out the American foxes hanging around at Coors Field.
The Guardians signed Josh Bell to a two year deal worth $33 Million with a player option after the first year. Sean Manaea also got a two year deal. In his case it is with the Giants. Xander Bogaerts signed an 11 year deal with the Padres for $280 Million. The Oakland Athletics traded Sean Murphy to the Atlanta Braves. A couple of other catchers were involved with Manny Pina going to Oakland in the three team deal and William Contreras going to the Brewers. The Athletics followed that up by designating Vimael Machin for assignment. Chris Bassitt appears to have a deal with the Blue Jays for three years and $63 Million.
