  • Tigers' Anthony Bemboom: Gets NRI from Tigers

    Bemboom signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Friday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Bemboom entered free agency in the offseason after two seasons with Baltimore, where he slashed .127/.225/.206 across 72 total plate appearances. Given Bemboom's poor major-league history, he likely won't offer the Tigers much more than organizational depth behind the dish.

    Tigers' Brenan Hanifee: Back with Tigers on MiLB deal

    Hanifee signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Friday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Tigers non-tendered Hanifee earlier in the offseason, but the team will keep him around on a minor-league pact. Hanifee gave up three runs across five innings in three appearances with the Tigers last season, and he logged a 4.38 ERA through 90.1 frames at Triple-A Toledo.

  • Edgar Navarro RP | CHW

    White Sox's Edgar Navarro: Outrighted to Charlotte

    The White Sox sent Navarro outright to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Navarro made eight major-league appearances for the Sox last season, giving up seven runs across 8.2 innings. He put up a 4.33 ERA and 1.55 WHIP through 43.2 frames in Charlotte, but he will likely need to improve upon those numbers in order to reclaim a spot on Chicago's 40-man roster.

  • Shohei Ohtani DH | LAA

    Shohei Ohtani: Could be joining Toronto

    Ohtani (elbow) is expected to sign with the Blue Jays, JP Hoornstra of reports.

    Meanwhile, Ben Nicholson-Smith and Shi Davidi of report that Ohtani has not made his decision yet, and there's no timeline for when the two-way superstar will determine his landing spot in free agency. The momentum at least seems to be in Toronto's corner at the moment, but perhaps it's not a done deal just yet. Per Hoornstra, the Dodgers and Angels were the other two finalists for Ohtani along with the Blue Jays.

  • Zach Logue RP | DET

    Braves' Zach Logue: Gets minors deal from Atlanta

    Logue signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Friday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The past two seasons have been rough for Logue. He holds a 6.88 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 68 innings since 2022, and numbers get even worse in Triple-A (7.30 ERA, 1.86 WHIP). Barring a major turnaround in the minors, it's unlikely Logue makes any significant contribution to the major-league club.

  • Mets' Taylor Kohlwey: Receives NRI from Mets

    Kohlwey signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training.

    Kohlwey got a cup of coffee with the Padres in 2023, going 2-for-13 at the plate, but was non-tendered last month. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder job with the Mets but is likely to head to Triple-A Syracuse at the beginning of the season.

  • Billy McKinney RF | NYY

    Yankees' Billy McKinney: Returns to Yankees

    McKinney signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

    McKinney split the 2023 season between the Yankees and their Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, posting a .726 OPS with six homers over 48 games during his time with the big club. The 29-year-old will provide the Bronx Bombers with some veteran outfield depth.

  • Wander Suero RP | LAD

    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.

  • Evan White 1B | SEA

    Braves' Evan White: Pushed off 40-man roster

    Atlanta outrighted White (hip) to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    White was just acquired from the Mariners on Sunday as part of the Jarred Kelenic trade, but the 27-year-old former top prospect has already lost his 40-man roster spot. White is a career .165/.235/.308 hitter in 306 major-league plate appearances and missed the majority of the 2023 season following May hip surgery.

  • 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.
