More Big FA News

Some more A/B free agent signings earlier today:

El Paso signed a pair of Type B players: former Jacksonville reliever Quilvio Rodriguez (2 years, $2.6MM) and former Little Rock SS (and Season 12 AL ROY) Jerry Bernero (3 years, $16.9MM). The Sun Kings join Scottsdale as the most active FA players so far, with 3 A/B signings each.

Toledo added Victor Sosa (2 years, $7.6MM) to the bullpen...can the Mud Hens shake things up enough to get into the NL East race? They've added SP Jesus Javier and RP Sosa on pretty nice contracts. Young superstar 2B Marty Coco (#2 overall in Season 15) and RP Phil Feller (a second-rounder in Season 15) are ML-ready. These guys could make some noise this year.

2 very big names also re-signed with their old clubs: Rafael Brogna returns to Pittsburgh for 3 years, $15.2MM, and Mexico City pulls off their second re-signing, getting Pedro Encarnacion to come back for 5 years, $42.5MM.
