    Astros' Wander Suero: Inks minors deal with Astros

    Houston signed Suero to a minor-league contract Thursday.

    Suero was lit up for seven earned runs over just eight major-league innings with the Dodgers in 2023 and did not reach the MLB level at all in 2022. The 32-year-old right-hander will likely be Triple-A bullpen depth for the Astros.

  • Angel Perdomo RP | PIT

    Braves' Angel Perdomo: Re-signs with Atlanta

    Perdomo (elbow) signed a one-year, non-guaranteed split contract with Atlanta on Thursday.

    Perdomo was non-tendered by Atlanta last month, a few weeks after being claimed off waivers from the Pirates, but he's back now to continue his Tommy John rehab with the reigning NL East champs. The 29-year-old underwent the reconstructive elbow procedure in October, so he's doubtful to pitch at all in 2024.

  • Sam Long RP | OAK

    Royals' Sam Long: Inks minors pact with Royals

    Kansas City signed Long to a minor-league contract Thursday.

    Long was outrighted off the 40-man roster in Oakland at the end of the 2023 regular season after struggling to a 5.60 ERA and 32:21 K:BB across 45 innings. The 28-year-old left-hander joins the Royals as organizational bullpen depth for the 2024 campaign.

  • Tyler Duffey RP | CHC

    Royals' Tyler Duffey: Heads to Royals on MiLB deal

    Duffey signed a minor-league contract Thursday with the Royals.

    Duffey made only one MLB appearance with the Cubs in 2023 and held a 3.77 ERA and 53:23 K:BB in 45.1 innings with their Triple-A affiliate in Iowa. The 32-year-old right-hander owns a career 4.57 ERA in the big leagues.

  • Matt Andriese RP | LAD

    Marlins' Matt Andriese: Agrees to minors deal with Marlins

    Andriese signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Nov. 29.

    Andriese hasn't pitched in the majors since 2021, having spent 2023 at Triple-A Oklahoma City in the Dodgers organization where he held a 6.05 ERA over 21 appearances (19 starts). It's not clear whether the Marlins intend to have him starting or relieving, but either way he's likely to begin the year at Triple-A Jacksonville.

  • Randy Vasquez RP | NYY

    Padres' Randy Vasquez: Heads to SD in Soto deal

    The Yankees traded Vasquez, Michael King, Drew Thorpe, Jhony Brito and Kyle Higashioka to San Diego on Wednesday in exchange for Juan Soto and Trent Grisham, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Vasquez appeared in 11 games and made five starts for the Yankees in 2023, registering a 2.87 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 37.2 innings. His numbers were worse in Triple-A (4.59 ERA, 1.47 WHIP in 80.1 IP), but the Padres' depleted rotation presents an opportunity for Vasquez to be a part of San Diego's Opening Day roster.

  • Michael King RP | NYY

    Padres' Michael King: Sent to Friars

    The Yankees traded King, Drew Thorpe, Randy Vasquez, Jhony Brito and Kyle Higashioka to San Diego on Wednesday in exchange for Juan Soto and Trent Grisham, Jeff Passan of reports.

    King has put together two consecutive great seasons, logging a 2.60 ERA and 1.10 WHIP across 155.2 innings since 2022. He's been used most often as a reliever throughout his career, though he was stretched out into a starting role during the second half of last year. Given the Padres' glaring need for rotation arms, it's likely King retains a starting job in 2024.

  • Enmanuel De Jesus: Headed for KBO

    De Jesus intends to sign with a team in the Korea Baseball Organization, Dan Kurtz of reports.

    It's unclear which team De Jesus will be signing with, but the 26-year-old lefty is headed overseas nonetheless. De Jesus gave up eight earned runs in 6.1 innings with the Marlins in 2023 and posted a 4.78 ERA and 1.70 WHIP through 84.2 frames at Triple-A Jacksonville.

  • Adam Cimber RP | TOR

    Angels' Adam Cimber: Inks one-year deal with Angels

    Cimber (shoulder) signed a one-year, $1.65 million contract with the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Cimber missed the second half of the 2023 season because of a shoulder strain and had an ugly 7.40 ERA in 20.2 innings when healthy, but he was a bullpen workhorse for the Marlins and Blue Jays between 2021-22 and could offer a much-needed boost to the relief corps in Anaheim if his health cooperates. The 33-year-old right-hander owns a career 3.49 ERA at the major-league level.

  • Rays' Erasmo Ramirez: Returns to Rays on MiLB contract

    Tampa Bay re-signed Ramirez to a minor-league contract Monday.

    Ramirez was outrighted off the Rays' 40-man roster at the end of the 2023 regular season, but he's now back with the club on an MiLB deal for 2024. The 33-year-old right-hander owns a career 4.37 ERA in 828.1 big-league innings.
