According to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times, the Rays signed outfielder Gabe Kapler to a one-year, $1MM deal.  An hour earlier, Tommy Rancel of DRays Bay wrote that the two sides could be close to a deal.

Hard not to like the signing.  Kapler, 33, hit .301/.340/.498 while playing all three outfield positions in his comeback season (he spent '07 managing in the minors).  ESPN's Keith Law suggested Kapler showed enough to merit an everyday job in center field.

For $1M it would have been worth it.  Lots of power on the bench.

Brewers are dumb for not resigning Gabe.

He was great last year
