Cubs Sign Two Pitchers, Pirates and Phillies Add One

USATSI_8425167_154224518_lowresajpierzynskiA quick round up of a couple free agent signings from the past two days.

The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a four-year contract with right handed pitcher Edwin Jackson. The deal is for $52 million, with an $8 million signing bonus, and a yearly salary of $11 million. The 29 year old pitched for the Washington Nationals last season, posting a 10-11 record with a 4.03 ERA in 31 starts.

The Cubs also signed former Blue Jay, Carlos Villanueva yesterday. Villanueva received a two-year, $10 million contract. He split time in the Jays bullpen (22 games) and in the starting rotation (16 starts), posting a 7-7 record and a 4.16 ERA.

The Texas Rangers lost catcher/1st baseman Mike Napoli to the Boston Red Sox (3 years, $39 million) earlier in the offseason. Part of that void will be filled by A.J. Pierzynski, who signed a one year deal worth a reported $7 million. Pierzynski will share the catching duties with Geovany Soto, and will see some times as their designated hitter.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting this morning that the Pittsburgh Pirates have signed Francisco Liriano to a two-year, worth around $13 million. Liriano split time last season with the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox. He posted a 5.34 ERA in 156 2/3 innings last year.

The Miami Marlins have agreed to a one-year contract with Placido Polanco worth $2.75 million. Polanco can also receive up to $300,000 in bonuses for games played. He’ll get an extra $125,000 for playing in 100 games, and an extra $125,000 if he gets into 120 games. Polanco battled a variety of injuries (back, knee, ankle and wrist) last season, missing 72 games. He won a gold glove in 2011, and was the starting third baseman for the NL All-Star team.

The Philadelphia Phillies have signed 34-year old reliever Mike Adams to a two-year contract worth $12 million. Adams pitched last season with the Texas Rangers, posting a 5-3 record with a 3.27 ERA. The deal also includes an option for 2015 for $6 million or $6.5 million. If Adams pitches in 65 games in 2014, he’ll get $6 million. If he pitches in at least 120 games in the two years, with 60 coming in 2014, he’ll get a guaranteed $6.5 million.
