Busy day for Magpies as Cox signs and Torralda agrees contract extension
Cox expected to provide elite defensive infield backup

By Tim Curtain, 8:39PM, 15 Dec 50

The Des Moines Magpies had two items of good news for their fans today, as they announced the signing of free agent infielder Curt Cox and the agreement of a contract extension with first baseman Gonzalo Torralda.

Torralda, 24, is the latest key young player for the Magpies to agree a deal which will see him avoid the arbitration process at the end of the 2051 season. He established himself as a key part of the Magpies’ offense this campaign, delivering a .737 OPS with 18 home runs, although manager Johannes Kepler has used him almost exclusively against right-handed pitching. The contract is worth $7.5m per year.

Cox, 32, is a 9-year SCL veteran who has previously donned the uniforms of Atlanta, Baton Rouge and Annapolis. He is primarily a defensive specialist, and is equally adept at all the infield positions. But he isn’t hopeless with the bat either, putting up a .673 OPS as a bit-part player for the Mustangs this season. He joins a plethora of major league-standard middle infielders on the Magpies’ minor league roster. Magpies sources tell SCL At-Bat that Cox is likely to see major league action this coming season if the team’s defense falls short of GM Billy DePodesta’s high expectations. He has signed a 1-year deal worth a reported $900,000.

A good offseason for the #Magpies so far I reckon, any chance of a big free agent signing or two, I wonder? #goonbilly #prettyplease

I reckon this could be an interesting season to be a #Magpies fan, lost a couple of key players but giving the youth movement a chance to shine, looking forward to seeing what Cory Adams, Marv Lewis and Rob Crawford can do #shesmovedon #ihaventmovedon

GM’s notebook

- All my planned offseason moves are now completed.
- My coaching staff are reporting concerns that Gianni Hagenaars in CF is struggling at the pate in offseason practice, and are suggesting that is a position that I might wish to upgrade. Other teams clearly think so, too, as I keep getting offered trades for a new CF (all of which I’ve turned down).
- I will be on the lookout for an opportunity to acquire a cheap young CF, but I don’t expect to do any business.
- Our payroll for 2051 is $92.5m. The contract extensions agreed with Gonzalo Torralda, Tom Hart and Jesús Benítez were all below their arbitration estimates, and have effectively largely solved our budget pressure for 2052. Our projection for 2052 is now down to $111m. Robinson Ortíz, Curt Cox and António Fernández all have contracts expiring after the coming season, and not renewing them would get our payroll back below Chris Rueda’s imposed $100m maximum.

Magpies acquire shortstop prospect Hendricks from Sharks

By Maggie Pye | 8 Jan | 12,712 comments

Billy DePodesta has agreed a trade with the Lansing Sharks which has landed the Magpies promising teenage shortstop Shane Hendricks. In exchange, the Sharks have acquired two of the Magpies’ glut of infielders, infielder Juan MacNamara and pacy 21-year-old shortstop Zacharie Garneau.

Hendricks was the Sharks’ first round draft choice in 2049 and was named the SCL’s #80 prospect at the start of last season. He projects to be a good all-round hitter at the plate, with superb speed round the bases. On defense, he specialises at the shortstop position and has exceptional range. He is at least two years away from being ready for the major leagues.

DePodesta has effectively given up two current major league-standard infielders to get Hendricks’s potential. MacNamara, 27, joined the Magpies from Annapolis in November 2045 in DePodesta’s very first trade as general manager. Despite several spells on the team’s 25-man roster over the past three seasons, he never managed to establish himself as a regular player. His talent has never been in question, however, and the perpetually win-now Sharks ar expected to begin the season with installed MacNamara as their everyday SS. Insiders say the deal came about quickly after Lansing contacted the Magpies about MacNamara’s availability, suspecting, correctly, that the earlier signing of free agent infielder Curt Cox had made MacNamara surplus to requirements in Iowa.

Bismarck sign free agent outfielder Limón

Posted by Smokey Appstore | Jan 23 | 8:57AM

It was the news that Magpies fans were dreading, yet at the same time fully expecting. Not only has Enrique Limón’s departure from their team been confirmed today, but he has signed with a direct divisional rival of the Magpies, the Bismarck Coyotes.

The Magpies made no effort to retain Limón this winter, knowing he would attract a salary on the open market far beyond their ability to pay. Although his contract with Bismarck is worth $19m annually, below the $27m salary he began the offseason demanding, it is still for 4 years and worth $76m overall. Fan-favourite Limón was fantastic for the Magpies last season, hitting .300 with 18 HR and 86 RBIs. Bismarck want him to be their starting centre fielder. They finished 3 games outside the Western League wildcard places last year, and getting Limón signals their intent to close that gap and make the playoffs for the first time since back in 2042.

The good news in this for the Magpies is that the team will obtain in compensation the Coyotes’ first round draft pick in June, and an additional pick in the first supplementary round. The Magpies’ already well-stocked farm system will obtain several further top young talents.

Cantrell signs lucrative $104m contract to help Olympia rebuilding project

Posted by Dylan Perspective | Jan 25 | 3:32PM

The Olympia Wolfhounds have today announced the signing of free agent starting pitcher Kevin Cantrell on a 5-year contract worth a reported $104m. Cantrell, who turns 31 next month, previously enjoyed 4 hugely successful seasons with the Des Moines Magpies, leading the team into the postseason in each year, and posting a 52-44 record for the club overall. In his career to date, he has an 85-69 record with a 3.10 ERA. The Wolfhounds are hoping he will retain that level of performance throughout the lifetime of his whopping new contract.

With the worst record in the entire SCL last season (58-104), the Wolfhounds’ first round draft pick in this June’s player draft is protected. In compensation for losing Cantrell, therefore, the Magpies will gain a pick in the first supplementary round and receive Olympia’s third round pick.

Veteran starter Watkins joins Magpies on one-year deal

By Maggie Pye | 13 Feb | 169 comments

The Magpies announced this morning that they have agreed a one-year contract with 29-year-old starting pitcher Pat Watkins, valued at $2.0m. Watkins was the 14th overall pick in the 2039 draft by Santa Fe, and also played for the Montgomery Cruisers. He was a member of the Cruisers’ rotation when they won the SCL Cup Final Series in 2048. He went 10-16 with a 5.37 ERA last season for the Outlaws. Sources familiar with the Magpies’ thinking say that the front office had become concerned about a lack of experienced pitching depth in the organisation, and Watkins on a one-year agreement is an affordable solution to that problem. He will start the year on the Magpies’ minor league roster.
