Not Much Going On Sunday Morning . . . Or Monday Morning

Luis Gonzalez is all but heading to the Yomiuri Giants. Once he passes a physical his ~$1M contract will be official.

We also find out that the Padres and Mariners have offered Brian Lawrence a contract and the Rockies have not. However, Lawrence and his agent appear to be focused on the Rockies since they are anticipating an offer. He'll throw on Monday and the Rockies should offer a contract if all goes well.

Around the NL West:

The Padres signed ex-Giant, ex-Met, ex-Red, ex-Cub, ex-Rockie and ex-D'Back Shawn Estes. Estes made one start last season for the Padres (in April) and didn't pitch again. He had Tommy John Surgery in June.

The D'Backs agreed to a 1-year extension with Randy Johnson, so the trade needs only to be announced officially.

Update [2007-1-8 11:9:2 by Russ in NY]: Karim Garcia will sign a minor league contract with either the Phillies or the Rockies, probably today.

Javy Lopez's contract has one of those nifty clauses that allows him to be a free agent if he doesn't make the team at the close of Spring Training.
