1 year...$750k with performance bonuses to bring it up to $3.25 million.

In an era where bums make $5 million a year EASY...I'm incredibly surprised by this and think it's a great deal. Yea he has his problems but that's a very cheap pick up and I feel he'll exceed his contract. And I also can't believe he's only 27.

Wow. .260 hitter, 600+abs, and only 18 homers. 20 walks, 112 ks-not a good ratio or outfielders. Might be overpriced.....

Yea. His OBP is absolutely terrible. But now he's going from a pitcher's park to a hitter's park. And he's only 2 years off his career season. And like I said...he's only 27. Definitely wouldn't call this overpriced.

Sparky - Where do you think he will hit in the lineup?

Probably batting 6th .ON days that lefties pitch may move up 5th occasionaly or down to 7th vs rihties at times. THink his production determines his place in the lineup.

I'm hearing even when he's ready to play as he is injured now that it will be a platoon situation.

Al Kaline at 78 years old probably has more range in the fielx than Delmon. Add his questionable decision making and inconsistent lackluster numbers and I am mildly surprised he got a guaranteed contract. Figured him for a minor league deal with a spring invite.
