    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.

  • Spencer Steer 1B | CIN

    Reds' Spencer Steer: Slated for outfield duty

    Steer is in line to play regularly in the outfield following the Reds' signing of Jeimer Candelario, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Cincinnati made a crowded infield situation even more crowded with its acquisition of Candelario. Steer is an infielder by trade, but he made 38 starts in the outfield in 2023 and would appear pegged for regular left field duty in 2024. Even with Steer slated to play mostly in the outfield next season, the Reds would still appear to have at least one more infielder than they have starting spots. Jonathan India remains a good bet to be traded.

  • Aaron Judge RF | NYY

    Yankees' Aaron Judge: Toe injury 'resolved'

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Judge's toe injury is "a resolved issue," Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Judge tore a ligament in his right big toe when he crashed through a wall June 4 at Dodger Stadium and spent about two months on the injured list, but it has healed on its own without surgery, and he should be 100 percent steering into the 2024 campaign. The 31-year-old slugger projects to serve as the Opening Day center fielder for New York, with recent trade acquisitions Juan Soto and Alex Verdugo flanking him in the corners. Trent Grisham will be an active fourth outfielder.

  • Juan Soto LF | SD

    Yankees' Juan Soto: No extension talks

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that he has not had any talks with Soto regarding a contract extension, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    The revelation comes as no surprise, as the full expectation for a while now has been that Soto and his agent, Scott Boras, plan to test out free agency next offseason. Soto famously rejected a 15-year, $440 million contract extension offer from the Nationals in 2022, which led to him being traded the first time to the Padres. The 25-year-old will surely be looking for at least that much next winter, although a lot can happen between now and then.

  • 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.

  • Franchy Cordero: Headed to Japan

    Cordero signed a contract Thursday with the Seibu Lions in Japan.

    The news was reported by Cordero's agency (Republik Sports) on Instagram. The 29-year-old outfielder never quite got it going at the MLB level, but he's always torn it up in the minors and his offensive profile could wind up translating well to Nippon Professional Baseball. Cordero leaves behind a career .678 major-league OPS.

  • 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.
