Rosenthal On Uggla, Arroyo, Angels

Plenty of intriguing new hot stove info from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports

  • Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla rejected a four-year, $48MM extension offer.  Uggla is one season away from free agency, and may prefer to hold off.  SI's Jon Heyman wrote on Thursday that the offer was to pay $8MM in 2011 and that Uggla sought five years.  Assuming Uggla is in line for $10MM or so in arbitration, he must feel he can top what equates to a three-year, $38MM free agent offer.
  • Rosenthal expects the Reds to complete a two-year extension with Bronson Arroyo this week.  Arroyo's 2011 option, which apparently is worth $13MM, was already picked up.  So this new deal would add the '12 and '13 seasons.
  • The Angels may be forced to deal with Scott Boras this offseason, especially if they fail to sign Carl Crawford.  Boras represents potential targets Jayson Werth, Adrian Beltre, and Rafael Soriano.
