  • Adam Haseley RF | CHW

    White Sox's Adam Haseley: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Haseley was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Tuesday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Paul DeJong, whose one-year, $1.75 million agreement with Chicago has now been made official. Haseley, 27, slashed just .222/.282/.278 over 39 major-league plate appearances in 2023 and also had underwhelming numbers with Triple-A Charlotte.

  • Easton McGee SP | SEA

    Brewers' Easton McGee: Latches on with Milwaukee

    McGee (elbow) signed a two-year, minor-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

    McGee was given an invitation to major-league spring training as part of the deal, but he'll spend it rehabbing after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. The 25-year-old doesn't figure to be game-ready until around the middle of the 2024 season, but he is locked in with the Brewers through 2025.

  • Ryan Jensen RP | SEA

    Marlins' Ryan Jensen: Claimed by Miami

    The Marlins claimed Jensen off waivers from the Mariners on Monday.

    Jensen had been designated for assignment by Seattle last week and has now found a new home. The 25-year-old right-hander held a 5.32 ERA and 78:54 K:BB over 64.1 innings between the Double- and Triple-A levels in 2023. He was deployed primarily as a reliever last season, but it's not whether the Marlins intend to continue using him out of the bullpen.

  • Jason Heyward RF | LAD

    Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Reaches deal to stay in L.A.

    Heyward agreed Monday with the Dodgers on a one-year, $9 million contract, Kiley McDaniel of reports.

    Heyward and the Dodgers will run it back after he was surprisingly productive in 2023, slashing .269/.340/.473 with 15 home runs and 40 RBI over 377 plate appearances. His .813 OPS this past season was his highest mark since 2012, excluding the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign. The 34-year-old should fill a similar role again in 2024, starting in right field against righties while occasionally filling in as a center fielder. The Dodgers' decision to bring back Heyward also means that Mookie Betts will continue to see more action at second base.

  • Cole Waites RP | SF

    Giants' Cole Waites: Brought back by Giants

    The Giants re-signed Waites (elbow) to a minor-league contract Sunday.

    Waites was non-tendered by San Francisco earlier this month but is now back in the organization. The 25-year-old had Tommy John surgery in September and will be sidelined until at least spring training in 2025. He'll now get to conduct his rehab in familiar surroundings.

  • Garrett Hill RP | DET

    Tigers' Garrett Hill: Re-signs with Tigers

    The Tigers re-signed Hill to a minor-league contract Sunday.

    Hill was non-tendered by Detroit earlier this month but will remain in the organization. It's not clear whether he was given an invitation to the major-league side of spring training as part of the deal. Hill was torched for 20 runs (16 earned) over 15.2 major-league innings in 2023.

  • Jose Castillo RP | MIA

    Diamondbacks' Jose Castillo: Gets MiLB deal from Arizona

    Castillo agreed to a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Castillo has been given an invitation to the major-league side of spring training. The 27-year-old left-hander spent nearly all of 2023 at the Triple-A level, posting a 7.65 ERA and 48:24 K:BB over 37.2 frames. He boasts a 55:16 K:BB over 40.1 career innings in the majors.

  • Sonny Gray SP | MIN

    Cardinals' Sonny Gray: Reaches deal with St. Louis

    Gray agreed to a three-year, $70 million contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The deal also includes a $30 million club option (or $5 million buyout) for 2027. St. Louis will also forfeit a draft pick and international bonus pool money as a result of signing Gray, who was given a qualifying offer from Minnesota before becoming a free agent. Gray is coming off an American League Cy Young runner-up finish in 2023 with the Twins, having collected a 2.79 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 183:55 K:BB over 184 innings. He could be the final piece of a rotation makeover for the Cardinals after they announced deals with Lance Lynn and Kyle Gibson last week.

  • Reds' Alex Blandino: Joins Cincy on minors deal

    Blandino signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Wednesday.

    Blandino joined the Giants on a minor-league deal ahead of the 2022 season before being traded to the Mariners. He was let go by Seattle in August of 2022 and didn't play last year, but he's slated to get another opportunity to provide organizational depth for the Reds in 2023. The 31-year-old played in 135 major-league games with the Reds between the 2018, 2019 and 2021 seasons and hit .226 with two homers, 29 runs, 16 RBI and a steal. He should play mainly in the minors in 2023.

  • Reds' Reiver Sanmartin: Signs with Cincinnati

    Sanmartin (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Nov. 19.

    Sanmartin underwent Tommy John surgery in early July before being non-tendered by the Reds in mid-November. While it's unclear whether his new minor-league contract is a one-year or two-year deal, he'll at least be able to begin his recovery process as part of the organization.
