Winter Meetings Roundup: AL West

G. Newman Lowrance

All the AL West signings and rumors from day one of the winter meetings.

This quick recap will detail what happened around the AL West in Nashville Monday.

There was one small signing and one kind of big signing (injury pending), but the bulk of the hot stove action came from potential rumors.

The Oakland Athletics were completely silent on day one, but you never know what tricks Billy Beane may have up his sleeve. The ongoing rumors indicate that the other three squads may get very busy quickly. It will be exciting to see what the final two days of the winter meetings entail for the division.

Let's look back and examine what news has hit the wire so far.

Signings/Acquisitions

  • Texas Rangers re-sign Geovany Soto
  • Rangers signed Joakim Soria to 2-year deal
  • Ongoing Rumors

  • Rangers most aggressive for Josh Hamilton
  • Rangers interested in R.A. Dickey
  • Los Angeles Angels one of eight teams interested in LHP Sean Burnett
  • Seattle Mariners made trade proposals to Pirates for RHP Joel Hanrahan and 1B Garrett Jones
