The Kotchman Deal

A few more details have leaked out and this seems solid enough to write about now.

MARINERS SEND:
Bill Hall
A Minor League PTBNL
Cash

MARINERS RECEIVE:
Casey Kotchman

Kotchman is 2nd year arbitration-eligible and made just under $3 million last year. Since this is how arbitration works, expect him to get a raise to about the $3 million range. He'll be a free agent after 2011 should he be tendered a contract after 2010.

Analysis on Kotchman to follow and grading the deal later if/when we get better word on the minor leaguer (Josh Fields, anyone?) and how much cash (probably a million and change).
