Dickson joins Magpies in cut-price deal

Posted by Michael Cornpop | Feb 1 | 3:37PM

The Magpies have announced that they have reached an agreement with free agent pitcher Greg Dickson on a 1-year contract worth $0.9m. The deal is worth considerably less than the $2m+ salary that Dickson had started the winter by seeking. However with preseason about to begin and no other concrete offers on the table, Dickson will seek to build his value ahead of a second round of free agency next year. That could be easier said than done, though, as Dickson will likely be on the Magpies minor league roster when the season starts. He is expected to provide competition for Jorge Cruz and former starter P.J. Hendrickson for the team’s two left-handed relief pitcher spots on the active roster. Dickson could also benefit should the Magpies decide to move Hendrickson back into the rotation at some stage.

The Magpies also told that negotiations have ended with Olympia on a possible trade involving first baseman Patrick Clayton and catcher Ernesto Solís, after the Wolfhounds decided to promote Solís to their active roster as understudy to starting catcher Kenkichi Sato.
