Jose Mesa Rumors


Ruben Amaro Jr. Chats Phillies

Phils assistant GM Ruben Amaro Jr. recently did a chat at MLB.com.  I remember Frank Wren did one in mid-November; this is a cool trend. 

  • Amaro admits that the Phils are still considering upgrading at third base.  They've had discussions about Pedro Feliz as one such option, while Morgan Ensberg is not on the radar.
  • It's unlikely that the Phillies re-sign Jose Mesa.
  • Also unlikely would be a Bartolo Colon signing.  On the other hand, discussions with Scott Boras about Kyle Lohse are ongoing.



Tigers Sign Jose Mesa

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Tigers have signed Jose Mesa to a one-year deal for about $2.5MM.  He turns 41 next May.

Joe Table switched to relief in '94 and then had some glory years as the Tribe's closer.  After that he bounced around to about eight million teams with varying success. 

With an awful K/BB of 1.08 last year, you have to think Mesa is on the brink of collapse.  No one is sure how he helps the Tigers, unless Omar Vizquel is traded to the White Sox.
