As much as I am concerned about Yovani Gallardo, getting him for 3 yrs at less AAV than J.A. Happ is one of the best deals on this entire list. Not to mention, a fourth year option! If Gallardo, IF Gallardo puts up career average years moving forward it's a great deal.

Here's the list of starting pitchers with minor league deals:

Ross Detwiler (Cleveland)

Yohan Flande (Colorado)

Dillon Gee (Kansas City)

Jeremy Guthrie (Texas)

Roberto Hernandez (Toronto)

Kyle Kendrick (Atlanta)

Brandon Morrow (San Diego)

Sean O'Sullivan (Boston)

Cesar Ramos (Texas)

Tim Stauffer (Arizona)

Yasiel Sierra (Los Angeles NL)

Ryan Vogelsong (Pittsburgh)

Some of these guys will likely be relievers in 2016.

Early results. If the Orioles want a #2/3 starter they're looking at about $15 mil according to current projections on Spotrac.

Happ is a 4/5.
