JeffWatch '06

Welcome to the continuation of JeffWatch '06.

According to Ken Rosenthal over at FoxSports, Arizona is once again interested in signing Jeff. This time to a one-year $525k deal with a player option for '07.

DaVanon, 32, figures to get considerable playing time in the Diamondbacks' outfield, likely sharing time in center with Eric Byrnes and possibly spelling Luis Gonzalez in left.

His signing also will enable the Diamondbacks to avoid rushing the developments of Carlos Quentin and Chris Young, two of the game's top outfield prospects.

Arizona has always seemed like a good fit for Jeff. And more importantly/selfishly, Phoenix is geographically close enough to us to get our "Jeff fix" on a semi-regular basis either in AZ or when the Diamondbacks visit the Dodgers.
