The newscasters down here were reporting that she was going to be ok at the 10 pm news last night. Nothing official from the Astros or the family as of this morning.Just read on some sites/twitter that the little girl is okay. Thank goodness.
And a 4th year option. I love this deal.3 years for $43MM. Only about $1MM more per year than the Yankees contract with Britton. Considering no draft pick attached, that seems right.
By way of comparison, $6MM less a year than the contract Wade Davis signed with the Rockies leading into 2018.
I read today that Maddon was going with a three week time frame which is what he normally does with RPs in spring training. That would mean the 27th or thereabouts. Could change, of course.Jeff Passan reporting Kimbrel gets $10 million this year and $16 million in 2020 and 2021. There's also a vesting option for 2022 that pays Kimbrel $16 million if it vests, which becomes a club option if it does not vest. Passan also reporting that him joining the Cubs before June 20th is a realistic goal.
