Yesterday evening, it was reported that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim reached agreement with Hideki Matsui to be their designated hitter. It’s a one-year deal for $6.5 million.
The Red Sox signaled an end to their pursuit of Jason Bay by signing Mike Cameron to a two-year $15.5. million contract.
I have Matsui worth around $6 million a year and Cameron worth about $20 million over two years. However, they are being added to already-good teams, therefore their marginal revenue contributions are higher than these estimates. Good deals for both clubs.
