Jesus Aguilar Jersey
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeurys Familia and the Mets finalized a $30 million Jonathan Villar Jersey , three-year contract on Friday, bringing the reliever back to New York, where he figures to serve as a setup man for newly acquired closer Edwin Diaz.Familia gets a $2 million signing bonus payable on equal installments on July 1 and Dec. 10 next year. He has salaries of $6 million in 2019 and $11 million in each of the final two seasons. The Mets will defer $1 million of his 2020 salary, payable on Jan. 15, 2022. They will defer the same amount of his 2021 pay, payable on July 1, 2022.He gets a $500,000 performance bonus in any season he has 50 games finished. He would get a $1 million assignment bonus if traded.The 29-year-old righty agreed to the deal Wednesday, subject to a successful physical.Diaz was acquired from Seattle in a trade along with All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano.Before leaving the winter meetings Thursday, new general manager Van Wagenen said the Mets liked Familia because of his “age, performance http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authent...ain-jersey , repertoire and comfort being able to handle our market.” The GM said he also thought Familia would be a good influence on Diaz.Familia had spent his entire career with New York before being traded to Oakland last July. This move likely means Familia will slide back into the setup role he flourished in as a rookie in 2014.Familia was a combined 8-6 with 18 saves in 24 chances and a 3.13 ERA for the Mets and A’s last season. He has 123 career saves for the Mets, who signed him at age 17.He had 43 saves in 2015 when the Mets made it to the World Series. He led the majors with a franchise-record 51 saves the following year and was an All-Star, again helping New York reach the playoffs.Familia served a 15-game suspension at the start of 2017 for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. Later that year, he had a blood clot that required surgery and finished 2-2 with a 4.38 ERA and six saves in 26 games.Last season, he was 4-4 with a 2.88 ERA and 17 saves in 21 chances with the Mets. He struck out 43 and walked 14 in 40 appearances covering 40 2/3 innings.The Mets got two minor leaguers from Oakland for Familia, acquiring Triple-A righty Bobby Wahl and Class A third baseman Will Toffey, and $1 million in international signing bonus pool allotment.Working mostly as a setup man for A’s closer Blake Treinen, Familia was 4-2 with one save and a 3.45 ERA in 30 games as Oakland earned an AL wild card. BALTIMORE (AP) — A season filled with losses and farewells ended for the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday with an informal sendoff for five-time All-Star Adam Jones, another veteran who seemingly has no place on a rebuilding team in the process of a major reboot.Although the endless string of defeats has mercifully ended, the goodbyes will likely extend into the offseason.“Now that the season is over,” Jones said Jhoulys Chacin Jersey , “the next chapter starts.”The 33-year-old was talking about his status as a pending free agent, but the sentiment applies to the Orioles.The status of manager Buck Showalter and executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette remains up in the air, and the rookie-filled roster that struggled through September is sure to change.Halfway into the worst season in Orioles history, Duquette began the overhaul by trading Manny Machado, Zach Britton, Jonathan Schoop, Kevin Gausman, Darren O’Day and Brad Brach for 15 minor league prospects and International signing bonus slot money.A team-record 15 players made their major league debut this season, and all that inexperience was one of many reasons why Baltimore finished 47-115, 61 games behind AL East champion Boston.There’s no telling when the rebuild will begin to yield victories.“You don’t put a timetable on it. You try to do it as fast as you can,” Showalter said. “But you’ve got to do it with your nose down Jeremy Jeffress Jersey , and grind each day. You might be surprised where you stand when those days are behind you.”Some things to know about the Orioles as they head into an important offseason:NEVER SAW IT COMINGPerhaps the most depressing aspect of the season is that the Orioles thought they would be contenders.The addition of starters Alex Cobb and Andrew Cashner, along with a power-laden lineup led by Machado and Schoop, led to unfulfilled optimism.Baltimore opened 5-14 and was 8-20 by the end of April.“We got on a losing roll and it kind of snowballed,” pitcher Dylan Bundy said. “Then May came and it wasn’t any better. Around the First of May I realized it wasn’t going to be the year we thought it was, the year we hoped for or the year we planned for in the spring.”DAVIS A DUDFirst baseman Chris Davis, like the Orioles, had a historically awful season.He batted .168, worst average by a qualifier in major league history, and struck out 192 times in 128 games.The former slugger is in the midst of a $161 contract that extends through 2022. That makes him tough to trade and leaves the Orioles little option but to hope he finds his stroke.PATIENCE REQUIREDThe Astros won the World Series last year after going through a similar rebuild. The key, says Astros manager A.J. Hinch, is that you can’t rush it.“Patience is always key Jesus Aguilar Jersey ,” Hinch said. “Finding great players is paramount, and continuing to form their plan, develop their plan and execute it.“I know what it feels like when it works, and it’s worth it. But it can reach some tough moments while you’re trying to evaluate players, while you’re trying to rebuild it.”RAY OF HOPEOrioles catcher Caleb Joseph watched a bunch of rookies come up from the minors and was encouraged by their potential.“There’s some young talent in this clubhouse, and if you get everybody on the same page and start working towards our specific goal you can grow a nice little franchise here with the talent that we have,” Joseph said.Example: Rookie right-hander David Hess went 3-10, but in his final outing he pitched seven innings of three-hit ball against Houston.“I think the experience in itself goes a really long way,” Hess said. “You always hear coming up that you can’t really mimic the big leagues at any other level. That definitely proved true.”
