Baseball America released its weekly transaction report after yesterday morning’s post, so I’ll pass this along with some commentary. Some of these were referenced in the comments of yesterday’s post, but to put ‘em all in one place (and recycle a visual pun)…
- Re-signed RHP Joe Bisenius
- Signed IF-OF Buck Coats
- Signed OF Archie Gilbert
- Signed OF Jonathan Van Every
Coats is a 28-year-old utility guy that has gotten three cups of coffee with the Cubs, Reds, and Jays from ’06 to ’08 and has a career .294/.352/.407 line at the AAA level. Gilbert is a 27-year-old CF speedster (57 in ’10) with little power and mediocre fielding stats (career .979, strictly as an OF). Van Every is a 31-year-old OF that’s been stalled in the Boston system, with a skill set that’s similar to Justin Maxwell.
