Another Day on the Free-Agent Market

Several big-name free agents have put their names on contracts today.

Trenton continues to be a big-time player in the free-agent market. A day after re-signing Cap Herrera, they added to their outfield by inking former Syracuse LF Bret King. The 31- year old left fielder hit .279 last season with 38 HRs and 95 RBI. He received a 5-year, $38 million contract to switch teams.

While King heads south, former Shakers 3B Vin Foulke will head north, as he signed a 3-year, $16.2 million contract. Foulke saw part-time duty last season, as he couldn't crack a talented Salt Lake City team. He'll go play for the division rival Wild this season.

The biggest name pitcher to sign thus far is former Sultans pitcher York Burnett. He went 12-2 as the swingman for Monterrey last season. He signed with Helena for 3 years and $18 milion.
