One addendum: During our chat about Miguel Batista, I mentioned that there was a change in the new CBA that made it more difficult for teams to retain veteran free agents, like Batista, as depth in the minor leagues. Here’s a link explaining the changes in the new CBA. Specifically, I was speaking about this part:
Article XX(B) free agents signing minor league contracts who are not added to the Opening Day roster or unconditionally released 5 days prior to Opening Day shall receive an additional $100,000 retention bonus and the right to opt out on June 1
Article XX(B) free agents are players who become free agents after six years in the major leagues, e.g., Miguel Batista, Willie Harris, those kinds of guys.
