Brewers Sign Zach Duke
By Jeff Todd [January 15, 2014 at 4:29pm CST]

The Brewers have agreed to a minor league deal with lefty Zach Duke, reports MLB.com's Adam McCalvy (via Twitter). The deal includes a Spring Training invitation.

Duke, 30, struggled early last year with the Nationals, posting a 8.71 ERA in his first 20 2/3 innings. But the southpaw turned things around upon joining the Reds, allowing less than an earned run per nine during his 10 2/3 innings in Cincinnati. Since losing his job as an everyday starter after the 2010 season, Duke has bounced around the league as a middle reliever.

Meh. Not the worst acquisition for a bullpen challenged team like the Brewers.

Quick Hits: Lambin, White Sox, Yankees, Tanaka
By Charlie Wilmoth [January 15, 2014 at 11:44pm CST]

Infielder Chase Lambin is looking to latch on with a team on a minor league deal, MLBTR has learned. The 34-year-old is the oldest active minor leaguer without any Major League experience despite a solid .272/.345/.438 career line in the minor leagues. Lambin played well in 24 games for the independent Atlantic League's Sugar Land Skeeters in 2013, leading to a minor league deal with the Royals, where he appeared in 22 games at the Triple-A level. After 11 seasons in the minors (and one in Japan), Lambin still hopes to achieve his dream of donning a Major League uniform. Here are some more notes from around baseball.

Sign him Rizzo!

No! He'd accidentally plunk an important Nat and put him on the DL.

Caleb Clay going to Korea.

Quote from: Rotoworld.com
Giants released RHP Caleb Clay.

The 25-year-old right-hander will sign with Hanwha in the Korean Baseball Organization. It's a bit of a surprise move, after he posted a terrific 2.96 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 110/31 K/BB ratio over 158 1/3 innings between Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse in 2013

Athletics Designate Corey Brown For Assignment
By Steve Adams [January 22, 2014 at 12:35pm CST]

The A's announced that they've designated outfielder Corey Brown for assignment in order to free a 40-man roster spot for southpaw Eric O'Flaherty, whose previously reported two-year deal has been announced.

Brown, 28, is a career .175/.250/.400 batter in 45 Major League plate appearances. At the Triple-A level, he's slashed .254/333/.461 in 1602 career plate appearances. Brown was originally drafted by Oakland before being included in a deal with the Nationals that netted Josh Willingham. The A's took Brown in the supplemental round of the 2007 draft as compensation for the loss of Frank Thomas.

Grady Sizemore signed with the Red Sox on a one year 750K deal... up to 6 million if he hits his incentives.

Nice signing.  Jackie Bradley competition / insurance.  Major league deal, so I assume he either makes the team, gets DL'd at the start of the year, or negotiates a release.

Collin Balester's (Bally, Ballystar) rehab from Tommy John surgery is going real well with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He will be in Bradenton, Florida until mid summer rehabbing at the Pirates spring training location in Bradenton. He and Ashley are expecting their 2nd daughter in February. Go Nats, Go Pirates!

Excellent news!  good luck to the family.  Don't spoil the grandkids too much.

Hope the rehab goes well.  Here's hoping for a reunion in Nats Park and PNC in October.

Great news  ...  and to be with the Bucs as well.   When he comes up with the Bucs, you can get there in no time ...  80/76 E, 79S to 279 takes you right to PNC.
