Mets' Kyle Crick: Gets NRI from NYM
Crick signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Friday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Although Crick hasn't pitched in a game since 2022, the Mets will invite him to major-league camp for an opportunity to make their Opening Day bullpen. Crick posted a 4.02 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through 15.2 innings with the White Sox two years ago, but an elbow injury ended his season early, and he remained a free agent for the entire 2023 campaign....

Crick exercised his opt-out clause in his contract with the Rays, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

Crick (elbow) signed a minor-league contract Saturday with the Rays that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

White Sox's Kyle Crick: Moved to 60-day IL
The White Sox transferred Crick (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday.
Crick has already been sidelined beyond the minimum 60 days, so the transaction won't affect his eventual timeline for a return. Considering Crick has yet to even head out on a minor-league rehab assignment, he seems unlikely to be activated until September. By moving Crick to the 60-day IL, the White Sox were able to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for catcher Carlos Perez, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Charlotte ahead of Sunday's game against the Guardians....

Crick has made eight big-league appearances this season, struggling to a 5.14 ERA while walking 20.6 percent of the batters he's faced. He owns a 4.60 ERA since the start of the 2019 season, so he's unlikely to find high-leverage work during his time on the roster.... See More ... See Less
