The Tropics sign RP Ricardo Baez to a 1 year $4.2 million dollar contract. Baez began his career in Long Beach and he has made stops in Huntsville, California, Calgary, Edmonton and Omaha.

He has a career record of 44-23 with 48 saves is 472 games. He posted a 3.43 ERA in 640 2/3 IP with a 6 Career WAR.

GM Jim Walker said of Baez. “Ricky gives us a good left on left option out of the pen. We will ease him into getting a chance to get some righties out. It will give us some options as the long season drags on. Before you ask question, Yes, we did overpay a bit but it is just a year.”

Third year Pitching Coach Tony Torres said, “Ricardo will gives us some innings at the back end. We need to get him confident in pitching inside on the right handers.”

I don’t know, I kind of like Baez. He’ll be decent against lefties, and during the 7th Inning Stretch he can sing “Diamonds and Rust.”

I was gonna go with "Drug Store Truck-Drivin' Man," but figured that might be too deep a track for most.
