Edgar Renteria upset San Francisco Giants dropped him

November 14, 2010|By Phil Rogers

World Series MVP Edgar Renteria (above right) appears stung that the Giants cut him. He has told reporters in his native Colombia he would like to finish his career with the Marlins, where he started, or the Cardinals. He could be a fit for the Cardinals, who are looking to upgrade their infield, but is probably looking at an incentive-laden deal after an injury-plagued 2010. … Look for relief pitchers to be among the first free agents to start taking contracts. Kerry Wood and J.J. Putz are among those drawing interest from a lot of teams, including the Cubs. The White Sox likely will re-sign Putz but first must sort out the situation with the arbitration-eligible Bobby Jenks, who is certain to be non-tendered at the Dec. 2 deadline if he hasn't been signed. … The Tigers apparently decided not to rattle the Yankees' cage on Derek Jeter, whose best — and maybe only — offer will come from the Yankees. Don't you know he loved winning the Gold Glove over younger players such as Elvis Andrus and Alexei Ramirez? … Give the A's credit for adding David DeJesus in a deal that sends Vin Mazzaro to the Royals. He's an upgrade who will help the pitching-rich A's compete, or he could bring a young bat or two in a trade next July. The addition of Mazzaro could make the Royals a little more willing to deal Zack Greinke.
