Jason Bartlett gets $11-million for two years from San Diego Padres

Former Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Jason Bartlett got the multi-year deal he was looking for from the Padres, avoiding arbitration with his new team by agreeing to a two-year deal for a reported $11-million, with a 2013 vesting option that could add another $4-million to the deal.

Bartlett was traded by the Rays to San Diego on Dec. 17 for four players, relievers Adam Russell, Cesar Ramos and Brandon Gomes, plus infielder Cole Figueroa. Russell and Ramos are expected to compete for jobs in the Rays bullpen this season.

Bartlett made $4-million last season and was projected to get around $5-million this season.

  1. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer

    Minors

    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
