    D-backs add 4-time All-Star reliever Melancon on 2-year deal

    Melancon gets $6 million in each of the next two seasons, and the deal includes a $5 million mutual option for 2024 with a $2 million buyout. He can earn $1 million anually in performance bonuses for games: $100,000 each for 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50, and $250,000 apiece for 40 and 45. The D-backs had problems all over the roster last season, finishing with a 52-110 record, but a bad bullpen was among the worst issues.

    Former Rangers on the move

    Alfaro, who was originally sent from Texas to Philadelphia in the Cole Hamels trade, and then went from the Phillies to the Marlins in the J.T. Realmuto trade, was shipped from the Marlins to the Padres for cash considerations. Which makes a certain amount of sense, given that Alfaro was one of A.J. Preller’s prize signings, much like current Padre Jurickson Profar.

    Padres, P Nick Martinez fail to complete deal before lockout

    The San Diego Padres and right-hander Nick Martinez were close to an agreement but didn’t get it completed before the owners locked out the players Wednesday night, according to a person with knowledge of the talks. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no deal had been reached. The person said the two sides could revisit a deal once there is a new collective bargaining agreement, but that Martinez remains a free agent.
