Texas, Brewville Clean Up
Thursday’s list of free agent signings had a definite theme, as the Texas Outlaws and Brewville Style combined to sign ten of the 18 players that came to terms today. The headliner, in terms of money, was the Outlaws’ signing of third baseman Garrett Atkins to a $155, five-year deal.
“We’re glad to really start filling up the roster,” said Texas owner Robert Arnwine. “We got guys at good prices, in our opinion, and we really feel this will help push us to the top of the standings. Outlaw fans really have something to get excited about now.”
Brewville became the fifth team to fill their pitching staff, leaving few jobs left in the URL for those making their living from the mound.
Owner Steve Egge stated that he was glad to get quality relievers such as Francisco Cordero ($42, 3 years) and Joe Nathan ($110, four years) to round out his staff.
In other signings, Wendy’s Peffercorns came to terms with outfielder Andruw Jones, locking him up for $130 over five years, and the Clarksville Cubs won the tiebreaking bidding on reliever Akinori Otsuka, getting him for $25 over three years.
