Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse reports that the Orioles are closing in on a deal with free agent first baseman Adam LaRoche.

LaRoche and Mark Reynolds: reunited in Baltimore. Cute. The 31-year-old LaRoche registered a pedestrian .261/.320/.468 batting line this past year at Arizona's power-friendly Chase Field, but he did manage 25 home runs and a career-high 100 RBI. He should do fine at Camden Yards.

The Los Angeles Times' Mike DiGiovanna reports that the Angels' offer to Adrian Beltre is for five years and around $70 million.

DiGiovanna adds that the Halos are not likely to increase the offer even though Beltre reportedly is wanting a six-year, $90 million contract. It's really hard to see him getting much more than what the Angels are dangling in front of him, even in this market. Beltre would be 37 in the last season of a five-year deal, so giving him an additional year would be awfully risky. The Angels are the odds-on favorite to land him at this point.
According to ESPN Boston's Gordon Edes, Dan Wheeler has agreed to a deal with the Red Sox.

WEEI's Alex Speier reports that the deal is for one year and contains a team option for 2012 that would vest with 65 appearances in 2011. When will it end? In the last two weeks the Red Sox have traded for Adrian Gonzalez and signed Carl Crawford, Bobby Jenks and now Wheeler. He strengthens a suddenly super deep bullpen and gives the team more protection to deal Jonathan Papelbon if they decide to do so (and can find a willing trade partner). Wheeler posted a 3.35 ERA and 46/16 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 innings for the Rays this past season.

Papelbon will be fine, they should give him opportunities before looking to trade, at least around the AS break.

Whatever, if Pap can be decent, then we have a nice end to the bullpen. Jenks, Wheeler, Pap, Bard...But that sign of Jenks eithe rmeans they dont trust Bard yet, or they're trying to get rid of Pap, so maybe somehting will happen soon regarding a trade

Padres finalize $11.5M, 2-year deal with Hudson

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres finalized their $11.5 million, two-year contract with second baseman Orlando Hudson on Monday.

The 33-year-old Hudson needed to pass a physical exam.

He spent the 2010 season with the Minnesota Twins and hit .268 with six home runs and 37 RBIs. He replaces David Eckstein, who became a free agent.

"We're thrilled to get him here to San Diego," general manager Jed Hoyer said. "Our focus at the beginning of the offseason was really to strengthen ourselves up the middle. I think with the addition of Cameron Maybin, Jason Bartlett and now, Orlando, we feel a ton better about our team up the middle. Orlando is a proven winner, a four-time Gold Glove winner and I think he's going to bring a ton of offense to our team, a ton of defense and a ton of energy."

Nolasco, Marlins agree to extension

The Florida Marlins and right-hander Ricky Nolasco have reached agreement on a three-year contract extension worth about $27 million, according to a source.

The deal is pending a physical.

The deal, if completed, would keep Nolasco under contract one year beyond when he would have otherwise entered free agency.

Earlier this weekend, it appeared the sides had arrived at an impasse in talks.

Nolasco, 28, is still in his salary-arbitration years and was due to receive a raise on the $3.8 million he earned this season. He went 14-9 with a 4.51 ERA in 26 starts in 2010.

Derek Lee signs with Baltimore, Okajima re signs with the Sox and Laroche talking with Washington

The Orioles and Derek Lee have agreed to a one-year contract, reports Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.
SI.com's Jon Heyman reports that Lee turned down $8.5 million from the Padres but will get just under $8 million from Baltimore. The Orioles continue their impressive infield makeover. They waited long enough on an answer from Adam LaRoche regarding the multi-year offers they'd sent him and finally moved on. Smartly, they committed only one year to Lee, who is coming off a disappointing year, having batted .260/.347/.428 with 19 homers over 547 at-bats this past season. Lee, however, is still one of the top defensive first basemen in the game. The 35-year-old has something to prove and we think he'll have a better 2011 than LaRoche. Dec. 31 - 3:36 pm et
The Red Sox and free agent left-hander Hideki Okajima are close to a one-year contract agreement, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
The Red Sox non-tendered Okajima earlier this month after he posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.72 WHIP over 46 innings in 2010, but he looked better in September and is likely to improve in 2011. Okajima will battle a slew of left handers -- Rich Hill, Lenny DiNardo, Andrew Miller and Felix Doubront -- for a job in the spring.










According to MASN's Jen Royle, the Nationals and Adam LaRoche are discussing a multi-year deal worth $8-9 million per season.
Royle is the same one that reported earlier this month that LaRoche had a three-year offer from the Orioles worth anywhere from $16-21 million, but evidently he prefers to play for Washington. It seems like a bit much to be giving a guy that made $4.5 million last season and didn't have a great year, but money doesn't seem to be an object this offseason for the Nationals.
