Rockies trade Dickerson ?to Rays for reliever McGee
•?Colorado’s crowded outfield just wasn’t big enough for Corey Dickerson.
The Tampa Bay Rays acquired Dickerson from the Rockies for left-handed reliever Jake McGee in a trade Thursday that also sent a minor leaguer to each team.
The Rays got third baseman Kevin Padlo and Colorado got right-hander German Marquez.
In another move, Tampa Bay reached a one-year, $4.75 million deal with free agent first baseman/outfielder Steve Pearce.
•?Right-hander Doug Fister and the Houston Astros agreed to a $7 million, one-year contract. The 31-year-old was 5-7 with a 4.19 ERA in 15 starts and 10 relief appearances last season for Washington. He was 16-6 with a 2.41 ERA for the Nationals in 2014, when he finished eighth in NL Cy Young Award voting. Fister is 65-63 with a 3.42 ERA 167 starts and 13 relief appearances in seven major league seasons that also included time with Seattle (2009-11) and Detroit (2011-13). His 1.77 walks per nine innings is the lowest among active pitchers with 1,000 or more innings.
•?Pitcher Ivan Nova and the New York Yankees agreed to a $4.1 million, one-year contract and avoided salary arbitration. The agreement Thursday was $100,000 under the midpoint between the $4.6 million Nova had asked for in arbitration and the $3.8 million he had been offered. He can make $100,000 in performance bonuses. The 29-year-old right-hander returned to the Yankees on June 24 after Tommy John surgery and went 6-11 with a 5.07 ERA in 17 starts. He is 46-33 with a 4.33 ERA in parts of six major league seasons and can become a free agent after this year’s World Series.
Chargers preparing for new facility in Orange County
