Wise to Milwaukee; Embree to San Diego

Wise Agrees to Two-Year Deal with Milwaukee

Reliever Matt Wise and the Milwaukee Brewers agreed Thursday to a $1.7 million, two-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

The 30-year-old right-hander made 49 appearances for the Brewers last season, going 4-4 with a 3.36 ERA. He had his first major league save on Aug. 5 at Philadelphia, then went on the disabled list with a strained muscle.

He gets a $100,000 signing bonus and salaries of $600,000 this year and $700,000 in 2007. In the second year of the contract, he can earn up to $100,000 in performance bonuses.
"Matt's ability to retire batters in tough situations makes him one of the premier setup relievers in baseball," Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin said.

Alan Embree to Padres

Left-handed reliever Alan Embree agreed to a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres on Thursday and was invited to spring training.

He would get an $850,000, one-year contract if he makes the big league roster.This will be Embree's second tour with the Padres. In 2002, he went 3-4 with a 1.26 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 36 appearances prior to being traded to Boston.

The 35-year-old Embree went 2-5 with one save and a 7.62 ERA in a combined 67 games with the Red Sox and New York Yankees in 2005.

I'm working on a site about San Diego & Tijuana dentists and looking for any good facts that I might be able to incorporate into my site to really provide an in-depth information source. After reading your Blog, I found it interesting, but, it wasn't what I was looking for. Well I'm off again in search for some good info.
