Glaus to Arizona
This should get things moving along on the offensive side of things.
The Diamondbacks effectively ended their contract stalemate with slugger Richie Sexson by convincing free-agent third baseman Troy Glaus to sign a four-year, $45 million contract with the club, The Arizona Republic has learned…
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Glaus, 28, will be given a $4 million signing bonus and a salary of $8.25 million this season. He’ll make $9.25 million in 2006, $10.75 million in 2007 and $12.75 million in 2008.
This knocks Arizona out of the running for Richie Sexson. Now that Glaus is off the board, I expect Sexson and Delgado won’t be too terribly far behind. Should be a fun week.
