Around the League: March 31, 2008

Time for today's Around the League segment.
  • According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves have signed 3B Scott Spezio to a minor league contract. Spiezio who is now 35, hit .269/.354/.386 in 223 AB's for the Cardinals last year.
  • The Orioles added some depth in the shortstop hole by signing Alex Cintron to a minor league deal, and assigning him to AAA Norfalk.
  • A little bit more on the Alex Rios extension. GM JP Riccardi is optimistic that a deal will get done. The deadline was pushed back a few days. I've heard that the two sides agreedish (poor grammer again) on an extension worth $65M over six years. The holdup is believed to be over the amounts on the option years.
  • MLBTradeRumors makes a few predictions on some July trades.
  • Some real action. KC 5 DET 4; ARI 4 CIN 2; MIL 4 CHC 3; CWS 8 CLE 10; TB 6 BAL 2; WSH 11 PHI 6; NYM 7 FLA 2; SF 0 LAD 5; LAA 2 MIN 3; PIT 12 ATL 11. Postponed: TOR @ NYY; COL @ STL.
