The 34-year-old outfielder is guaranteed $65,000 and can opt out if he's not on the 25-man roster by July 1. Hollins, an ex-Ray who last appeared in the Majors in 2006 and bats from the right side, spent all of 2008 with Kansas City's AAA affiliate and patrolled the outfield for the Yomiuri Giants of Japan a year earlier. His contract also contains a clause allowing him to sign with Asian teams. In parts of four seasons, he's a 242/.284/.417 (82 OPS+) hitter with 28 lifetime homers. Beerleaguer: Triple-A depth. If not for the Rays of a few years ago being so wretched, Hollins is your basic Triple-A lifer, stuck in that level since 1996. According to my calculations, he's appeared in 1,655 Triple-A games. That's a helluva lot. Add that to his season in Japan (I actually saw him play live in the TokyoDome), Hollins instantly becomes a new Beerleaguer favorite.
