JOAQUIN BENOIT RUMORS

Padres Trade RP Joaquin Benoit to Seattle

Within two days, Padres GM A.J. Preller has pulled off two trades, the most recent one sending relief pitcher Joaquin Benoit to the Seattle Mariners for a couple of minor league prospects, right-handed pitcher Enyel de los Santos and middle-infielder Nelson Ward. Last week, the Padres exercised Benoit’s $8 million option, but will now be relieved of that salary. De los Santos is...

Mariners get Joaquin Benoit, who won’t go away

Here’s the difference between now and the trade deadline. At the trade deadline, when the Twins went out and picked up Kevin Jepsen, I shrugged and kept thinking about other, potentially bigger things. I forgot about the move five minutes after I learned about it. Now, this is a whole post about the Mariners going out and picking up Joaquin Benoit from the Padres. Not that Benoit...

Joaquin Benoit could require DL stint for shoulder

San Diego Padres closer Joaquin Benoit may end up on the 15-day disabled list due to his bothersome right shoulder.

Who is the Next Joaquin Benoit?

Joaquin Benoit got a two-year, $15.5 mmillion deal to pitch for the Padres this week. The signing didn’t make many waves — after all, Benoit has been a very good reliever the last three years. But three years ago, Benoit’s three-year deal seemed like a head-scratcher. Are there any multi-year reliever signings going on right now that we might look back on as favorably as Benoit’s...

So Yeah, The Padres Actually Signed Joaquin Benoit

Earlier today, while most of San Diego was just starting their work day, and while I was heading to Panera for my lunch break here in Cleveland, the news broke that the Padres had done exactly what it was expected they would do since late last week, inking free agent reliever Joaquin Benoit to a 2 year contract that will pay him $15.5 million. It was a move I supported. It also is...

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the deal is pending on Benoit passing a physical. In his first season as Tigers closer, Benoit had 24 saves in 26 chances. But in Game 2 of the AL championship...

Yankees interested in Joaquin Benoit

getty images The New York Yankees reportedly have been considering Joaquin Benoit. Benoit, 36, could be used as either competition for David Robertson in the closers role or simply as a setup man.
