The deal guarantees two seasons with the Diamon Antworten

dbacks getting a pair of team options as well."In the wake of the Patrick Corbin signing in Washington Michael Wacha Jersey , the Diamondbacks made their own major league pitching acquisition. The Diamondbacks have signed right-handed pitcher, Merrill Kelly to a potential four-year pact. The breakdown of Kelly’s deal is as follows:The 2019 salary is $2M and 2020 is $3M. The 2021 option is for $4.25M with a $500K buyout and the 2022 option for $5.25M with no buyout.For long-time Arizona State fans, they might recognize the name. Kelly’s last moment of prominence was when he was drafted out of Arizona State University in the eighth round of the 2010 draft by the Tampa Bay Rays. Kelly never did make it to the majors there. In 2015, Kelly went overseas to Korea Ozzie Smith Jersey , where he has pitched in the hitter-friendly environment for the last four seasons as a starter with a relative amount of success.Rumors state that Kelly was being scouted by many teams for a return to the bigs in 2019. It seems the Diamondbacks wanted to make sure they were able to get their man before other, bigger-market teams had a chance to finish their business in the winter meetings, possibly leaving the Diamondbacks without their target.Although Kelly was a full-time starter in the KBO, it seems highly unlikely he will be more than a middle reliever for the Diamondbacks.More about Kelly can be found in this article from the other day at DRays Bay Day 3 of the Winter Meetings ends with a meh from Billy Eppler"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Angels PregameAngels PostgameGamethreadsHalos Heaven PodcastsShohei OhtaniMinor LeaguesInterviewsAngels NewsOff-Season TrackerAngels to sign Justin BourNew Albert Pujols Jersey ,180commentsDay 3 of the Winter Meetings ends with a meh from Billy EpplerByJessica DeLine@abaseballchickDec 12, 2018,4:24pm PSTShareTweetShareShareAngels to sign Justin BourGregory J. Fisher-USA TODAY SportsJustin Bour has agreed to a deal with the Angels per Jeff Passan.Was this who you were expecting? Someone on Reddit even posted the news this morning. Bour is a first baseman, so would look to split time with Albert Pujols which begs the question: What does Pujols do when Bour is at first base? If he is DH’ing , then he takes at bats away from Ohtani - at least when Ohtani comes back.30-year-old Bour is a career .260 hitter with a .344 OBP. Last year he hit just .227 but still put up a nice .341 OBP with 20 home runs over 141 games.What’s surprising to me is that he will likely platoon with Pujols, taking the lion’s share of right-handed at bats perhaps. Bour his .242 off righties last year and only .192 vs. lefties - a prime candidate for a platoon. Pujols, however, was worse against lefties (.200 AVG) than against righties (.259 AVG) Roger Maris Jersey , so this potential platoon is problematic to me. I am certainly not a fan of this move so I hope Bour comes really cheap (he made 2.5 million in 2018). Update: The reported contract is 1 year / 2.5 million
