Garrett Atkins Non-Tendered


Recommended Posts

Atkins isn't going to sign a cheap deal and then sit the bench so you guys can forget about that happening.

If anything he'll sign a low 1 year deal with someone that is going to give him a starting spot.

well we dont have a 1B or anyone who hits RH so if he did sign with us I doubt he'd sit on the bench

Garrett Atkins Has Three Offers

By Tim Dierkes [December 16 at 2:04pm CST]

Newly non-tendered corner infielder Garrett Atkins has offers from "at least three unidentified clubs," reports ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. Atkins' agent, Jeff Blank, told Crasnick his client is open to first or third base.

Crasnick speculates on the Orioles, Twins, Mariners, Giants, and Rangers as possible fits for Atkins. Talking to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, Blank admitted he spoke to the Orioles. He said Atkins "is just looking for an opportunity to be a starter."

What would be an appropriate offer for Atkins - perhaps one year and $3-4MM? Will he hold his own offensively away from Coors, and possibly in the American League?

keeping my fingers crossed!

Just signred with the Orioles

By Mark Polishuk [December 16 at 9:50pm CST]

Jeff Zrebiec and Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun are reporting that the Orioles have reached an agreement with corner infielder Garrett Atkins to a one-year contract. The deal is contingent on Atkins passing a physical later this week, and terms of the contract were not released.

Atkins was non-tendered by Colorado last week after hitting .226/.308/.342 in 399 plate appearances in 2009. Atkins has spent his entire seven-year major league career with the Rockies, posting a career .811 OPS. He's spent time at first and third base in recent years.
