12-20-2010: Wheeler signs, Parraz claimed by Yanks

The Red Sox added Rhode Island native Dan Wheeler to their bullpen this weekend, signing him to a one-year, $3M deal. Wheeler has pitched successfully in the AL East for many years, and should be a solid addition. The Sox hold a vesting option on him for 2012. Patrick Sullivan gives a nice overview showing how the Red Sox have done their research in signing players like Wheeler and Bobby Jenks.

The Yankees claimed outfielder Jordan Parraz off of waivers from the Red Sox, who we had just claimed from Kansas City this offseason. It would have been nice to have the added centerfield depth, but easy come, easy go.
