Jets signing Joe Flacco to one year deal

Less than a month after undergoing a neck procedure, Joe Flacco has found employment. Flacco has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported. The deal will pay Flacco $1.5 million and includes another $3 million in incentives, Garafolo added.

Orioles sign free agent pitches Kohl Stewart

The Orioles snuck in a major league free agent signing before the year closed, signing former Minnesota Twins first-round draft pick Kohl Stewart on Sunday to represent their first such acquisition of the offseason.

He made his major league debut in 2018 and made 17 appearances (six starts) for Minnesota in the past two seasons, with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.435 WHIP without many strikeouts. While he came out of St. Pius X High School in Houston, Texas, […]

Stephen Vogt agrees to 1 year deal with Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks signed veteran catcher Stephen Vogt to a one-year deal with an option for a second season, a deal that gives them an offensive-minded, left-handed-hitting complement to frontline catcher Carson Kelly. Vogt, 35, is coming off a strong season with the San Francisco Giants, for whom he hit .263/.314/.490 with 10 homers while serving as Buster Posey’s backup. It was an impressive bounceback year for a player who feared his career was in jeopardy when he underwent shoulder surgery in 2018, missing that season entirely. Vogt’s deal guarantees him $3 million. It calls for a $2.5 million salary for […]
