From the AP:
ATLANTA -- Craig Wilson, who could contend for playing time or a starting job in left field or first base, agreed Thursday to a $2 million, one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves.
The 30-year-old hit .251 with 17 homers and 49 RBIs last season for the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Yankees, who acquired him July 31 for pitcher Shawn Chacon.
Atlanta has an opening at first base after agreeing Wednesday to trade Adam LaRoche to the Pirates for reliever Mike Gonzalez in a four-player deal.
Wilson could platoon with left-handed hitting Scott Thorman at first base.
In addition to his salary, he can earn $100,000 in performance bonuses: $25,000 each for 400, 425, 450 and 475 plate appearances.
This just makes me sick. Yesterday, after I saw the Laroche deal, I said to a co-worker "Just watch, the Braves will sign Wilson to platoon with Thorman."
Hmmm, for $2 millon, Jeff Conine or Craig Wilson. You decide!
