    Scott Maine and 23-year-old infielder Ryne White, I watched Maine pitch here in Reno last season he looked pretty good, White only played here the last week of the season and did not get much playing time.

    Diamondbacks add Gillespie, Mercedes, Stange and Norberto to 40-man

    Diamondbacks purchased the contracts of OF Cole Gillespie, RHPs Roque Mercedes and Daniel Stange and LHP Jordan Norberto.
    The players are now safe from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft. Gillespie, 25, hit .304/.418/.514 in 42 games for Triple-A Reno this season and was invited to the prestigious Arizona Fall League. The D'Backs nabbed him from Milwaukee this past summer in a trade for Felipe Lopez.

    I also watched Cole Gillespie last season and he has promise, Brett Butler played him a lot as an infielder and he did deliver a few key hits

    Kyler Newbie and Luke Carlin outrighted to minors

    PHOENIX -- The D-backs outrighted pitcher Kyler Newby and catcher Luke Carlin to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

    The move takes the pair off the team's 40-man roster, which now stands at 38 heading into next week's Winter Meetings in Indianapolis.

    Newby was 2-3 with a 3.99 ERA in 42 games (two starts) for Double-A Mobile this past season and was impressive early on in big league camp last spring.

    Carlin, meanwhile, hit .321 with 17 doubles, seven homers and 35 RBIs for Reno last year. He had 21 plate appearances at the big league level and hit .167.

    The pair each have the right to refuse their assignment and elect to become free agents.

    Carlin was a popular player here in Reno last season. I don't know much about Newby

    Diamondbacks sign Carlos Corporan, TJ Beam and Drew Macias

    The Diamondbacks have signed catcher Carlos Corporan, another defense-first backstop, to a minor league contract. He likely will be the No. 2 catcher in Reno behind John Hester.

    Blockbuster 3-team trade

    * The Yankees receive center fielder Curtis Granderson, who turns 29 in March. Granderson is owed $5.5MM in 2010, $8.25MM in '11, and $10MM in '12, with a $13MM club option/$2MM buyout for '13. That's $25.75MM guaranteed over the next three years. Melky Cabrera could now be expendable for the Yankees, and the Cubs are one possible suitor.
    * The Diamondbacks receive a pair of starting pitchers: Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy. Jackson, 26, is under team control for '10 and '11 and is owed an arbitration raise on this year's $2.2MM salary. Kennedy, 25 this month, missed most of the '09 season due to surgery to remove an aneurysm near his shoulder. As far as I can tell he is under team control for another six seasons. This is the second year in a row Jackson has been traded at the Winter Meetings.
    * The Tigers receive four players: starter Max Scherzer, relievers Daniel Schlereth and Phil Coke, and center fielder Austin Jackson. The Tigers get five years of Scherzer, six of Schlereth, five of Coke, and six of Jackson, potentially 22 years of control in total. Scherzer, 25, and Jackson, 23 in February, are probably considered the prizes of the haul.

    Diamondbacks take Zack Kroenke in Rule 5 Draft; lose Hector Ambriz

    Diamondbacks: Zack Kroenke, LHP, from Yankees: A University of Nebraska product (fifth round 2005), Kreonke posted a 1.99 ERA with a 55/30 K/BB in 72 innings for Triple-A Scranton this year. The 25-year old has an 88-92 MPH fastball with movement, and he could end up being an astute pick as a bullpen asset if his command sharpens a bit more.
    Indians: Hector Ambriz, RHP, from Diamondbacks: Ambriz is 25 years old, a fifth rounder out of UCLA in 2006. He was mediocre as a starter for Triple-A Reno this year, with a 5.57 ERA and a 103/40 K/BB in 128 innings with 164 hits allowed. He does get his fastball past 90 MPH and has a good splitter, and I could see him being a decent relief arm with spot starter potential.

    D-Backs sign Blaine Boyer

    PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks signed right-handed relief pitcher Blaine Boyer to a one-year contract.

    Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Boyer was arbitration eligible.

    Boyer, 28, went 0-2 with a 4.12 ERA in 48 relief outings with three different clubs in 2009 - the Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, and Diamondbacks. He held opponents to a .265 batting average, walked 20 and had 29 strikeouts.

    In 30 games with the Diamondbacks he went 0-1 with a 2.68 ERA in 37 innings pitched.

    Boyer has been in the Major Leagues in parts of five seasons - all with the Braves until joining the Cardinals and then Diamondbacks last season. His overall record is 6-10 with a save and 4.76 ERA. He has recorded 132 strikeouts and 64 walks over his career.

    D-Backs non-tender Whitesell

    PHOENIX -- The D-backs declined to tender a contract to first baseman Josh Whitesell on Saturday, making him a free agent.

    In addition, the team announced it had tendered contracts to all six of its arbitration-eligible players, including Stephen Drew, Conor Jackson, Edwin Jackson, Miguel Montero, Chad Qualls and Aaron Heilman.

    Two other players who were eligible for salary arbitration, infielder Augie Ojeda and pitcher Blaine Boyer, were signed to one-year deals Friday.

    Whitesell, 27, was unable to replicate the success he had in Triple-A with the D-backs. In parts of two seasons with Arizona, he hit just .200 with two homers and 15 RBIs.

    All unsigned players, not just those eligible for salary arbitration as is commonly misinterpreted, had to be tendered contracts by 9:59 p.m. MT.

    Diamondbacks sign Rodrigo Lopez

    PHOENIX -- The D-backs signed right-hander Rodrigo Lopez to a Minor League contract on Wednesday and invited the veteran to Spring Training.

    Lopez has spent parts of eight seasons in the big leagues with the Padres, Orioles, Rockies and Phillies and has a career record of 68-66 with a 4.82 ERA in 194 games, including 166 starts.

    Last season, Lopez appeared in seven games (five starts) for the NL champion Phillies and was 3-1 with a 5.70 ERA.

    Lopez's best seasons came in 2004-05 when he was 14-9 and then 15-12 for the Orioles.

    Lopez joins right-hander T.J. Beam, outfielder Drew Macias and catcher Carlos Corporan as Spring Training invitees.

    D-Backs sign Jeff Bailey

    Jeff Bailey, who spent the last six years in the Red Sox organization, signed a minor-league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks,according to MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert ( via Twitter). Bailey, 31, had spent most of the past five years in Triple A Pawtucket, and was named 2008 International League Player of the Year when he hit .301 with a .405 OBP, .562 slugging and .967 OPS while clubbing 25 homers.

    Bailey played in 56 games in the majors for the Sox, hitting .228/.340/.434/.773 with six homers as a first baseman and outfielder. Bailey had been a catcher in his early career, but throwing issues sabotaged his work there, and he stopped catching during the 2005 season. Sox manager Terry Francona would often lament Bailey’s inability to stay behind the plate, since his bat likely would have ensured a sustained big-league career at that position, at least as a backup.

    Now, Bailey will try to forge a big-league spot with the Diamondbacks, who, according to Gilbert, have offered him an invitation to major-league camp.

    Diamondbacks sign Kelly Johnson

    Free agent second baseman Kelly Johnson signed with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday giving Arizona a much needed left-handed bat for their lineup. Johnson joins keystone partner Stephen Drew and catcher Miguel Montero as the only sure every-day lefty hitters in the lineup.

    I'd also like to report that after this offseason, I am retiring from reporting the daily team by team transactions (and the Baseball Fever community breathes a collective sigh of relief). It takes far too long to do.
