NL West Rumors: K-Rod, Street, Volquez, Renteria

Latest out of the NL West:

  • The Padres seemed to be making progress on a multiyear contract with Francisco Rodriguez, but it fell apart, tweets ESPN.com's Buster Olney. Presumably, having added Huston Street, the Padres don't have any more interest in K-Rod.
  • Speaking of Street, the Padres will receive $500K from the Rockies this year as a part of that deal, and another $500K if they don't pick up his 2013 option, tweets MLB.com's Corey Brock.
  • Street described the trade to the Padres as "bittersweet," writes Troy Renck of the Denver Post.
  • The delay in finalizing the Street deal occurred because the Rockies were close to sending him to the Reds for Edinson Volquez, tweets Renck.
  • The Giants appear set in the outfield, but are still seeking a right-handed bat in the infield, says Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News. Edgar Renteria seems to be a "pretty major longshot."

    i would say offer renteria 1mil again, just for laughs..but hes not even worth that

    Renteria – long shot.  Yes in game five of the 2010 World Series, but that’s it.  He got paid and earned his 18 million with one swing.  Move along, nothing to see here

    Edgar Renteria is not a bat.  Or a glove, really…

    Looks like Rodriguez was gonna be the new closer in San Diego before Street beat him to the punch.

  5. So the Rockies could have gotten Volquez, but instead got salary relief.  I am one disgruntled fan over that.

    So they pulled out of a deal for Volquez,………and instead went for a PTBNL???? in the division I might add. WOW!!

    So D’OD is about to get Volquez……….but at the last minute pulls for a PTBNL???????????? in the division I might add. D’OD has reached a new all-time low with this one. This is almost as bad as Ken Williams asking for a Ubaldo Jimenez package in return for Danks

    I really hope the Giants aren’t done with their outfield.

    so you give away your top pitching prospect to rent beltran…then dump him.  he’s a proven bat on a team that is in dire need of bats.

    this “deal” could rank with the george foster, gaylord perry nathan/liriano giveaways.

  10. That Renteria deal better be much more than a long shot. Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.
