Multiyear Deal Notes: Pelfrey, Danks, Andrus

We already found out that the Brewers and Rickie Weeks are tabling talks about a multiyear contract while the Cubs hope to pursue one with Carlos Marmol, so let's recap a few more notes regarding potential contract extensions…

  • Anthony DiComo of MLB.com tweets that the Mets never talked about a multiyear contract with Mike Pelfrey before agreeing to a one-year deal to avoid arbitration today.
  • John Danks told MLB.com's Scott Merkin that neither he nor the White Sox are panicking about getting an extension done. "It's not at the point where it's do-or-die for a [multiyear] deal," said the lefty, who confirmed that the two sides haven't talked seriously about a deal since before the 2009 season (Twitter link).
  • Meanwhile, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan wonders if the Rangers will approach Elvis Andrus about a multiyear contract in Spring Training. Andrus is under team control through the 2014 season.

No surprise on Pelfrey. I can’t remember the last time Boras let one of his clients sign a multiyear deal before testing the market.

Carlos Gonzalez signed an extension with the Rockies like a week ago.

Danks’s agent is really smart. He is one of those guys that just doesn’t get injured, so as he improves, his value continues to skyrocket. If I needed to start my team with a pitcher, there are few guys I would want more than Danks.

really? I mean Danks is good and all…but I can rattle off quite a list of names that are better than he is. I understand the homer-ism…but c’mon. Few guys?

Yes, he’s not THE best, and not very flashy. But he continuously is a very good pitcher with ability to shut down a team. Their are some guys I’d rather have, yes, probably about 10-12. But considering his youth, his left handedness and his impressive stats, I really like him
