Player AlarmsView All
T. Matzek - SP
Matzek signed a minor-league contract with Arizona on Tuesday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
Matzek has made 24 starts and one relief appearance in the big leagues, though none have come since 2015. The southpaw has been out of affiliated baseball since 2016. Last season with the Texas AirHogs of the independent American Association, he threw 88.2 innings with an unimpressive 5.89 ERA.

P. Bridwell - SP
Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday to make room for new acquisition John Curtiss, who was picked up in a trade from the Twins.
Bridwell had already been DFA'd once by the Angels this offseason back in November. That time, he was claimed by the Yankees, only to be DFA'd again less than a month later and reacquired by his old team. It remains to be seen whether he'll land with another team this time around.

J. Curtiss - RP
Curtiss was traded from the Twins to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for minor-league infielder Daniel Ozoria.
Curtiss was cast off the Twins' 40-man roster on Monday after Minnesota signed Blake Parker. The righty has thrown 15 major-league innings over the last two innings, allowing 12 runs, though his 2.77 ERA in 55.1 frames at the Triple-A level last season gives at least some reason for optimism. He'll be competing for one of the final bullpen spots in Los Angeles. Parker Bridwell was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

B. Dozier - 2B
Dozier said Tuesday that the bone bruise in his left knee is 100 percent healed, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Dozier dealt with a bone bruise throughout much of the 2018 campaign. While the issue was never serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list, it apparently led the veteran infielder to develop bad habits at the plate, which could help explain his down year (.215/.305/.391 in 151 games with the Twins and Dodgers). Dozier still managed to collect double-digit homers (21) and steals (12) for the sixth consecutive season, and will be an attractive bounce-back candidate in 2019 after signing a one-year deal with the Nationals.
Added 5:09 pm (EST)
J. Andreoli - RF
Andreoli was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Tuesday.
Andreoli bounced between Seattle and Baltimore in 2018, making his major-league debut and hitting a combined .230/.284/.262 in 26 games at both stops. He spent most of his time with Triple-A Tacoma, where he slashed .287/.397/.401 with 19 stolen bases in 89 games. The 28-year-old should serve as organizational outfield depth.

L. Martín - CF
Martin said Friday that he has made a full recovery from the bacterial infection that forced his emergency hospitalization Aug. 7, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Martin required medical attention after developing the life-threatening illness following his final plate appearance of the Indians' game against the Twins that day, noting that he "blacked out" before waking up in the hospital. The infection produced intense pain and resulted in Martin being shut down for the rest of the 2018 campaign, but after months of rest, the 30-year-old has enjoyed an otherwise normal offseason and feels ready to resume his career this spring. After re-signing with the Tribe on a one-year, $3 million deal shortly after the past season ended, Martin should get the opportunity to vie for a starting role in an unsettled Cleveland outfield.

Y. Grandal - C
Grandal passed his physical Monday and officially signed with the Brewers on a one-year, $16 million contract that includes a $16 million mutual option for 2020, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
When Grandal and the Brewers first agreed in principle Jan. 9, initial reports suggested the catcher would sign a one-year, $18.25 million contract. Instead, it was clarified Monday that Grandal's deal will guarantee him at least $18.25 million, as the 2020 option contains a $2.25 million buyout if not exercised. The structure of the contract keeps the door open for Grandal to remain in Milwaukee for two years and earn $32 million in salary plus award-based incentives, but the 30-year-old will presumably be eager to test the market again next winter in pursuit of a longer-term deal. Grandal reportedly turned down a four-year, $60 million offer from the Mets earlier in the offseason before New York turned its attention to other catching options.

M. Upton - CF
Melvin Upton Jr. announced during a Tuesday appearance on MLB Network that he will be officially known as B.J. Upton moving forward, Scott Boeck of USA Today reports.
Upton previously went by B.J., which stands for "Bossman Junior," when he began his professional career in 2002 upon being selected by Tampa Bay with the second overall pick in the first-year player draft. Since the 2015 season, however, he had gone by Melvin Upton Jr., in honor of his father's given name. He's since decided to once again pay homage to his father's nickname by reverting to B.J. as he heads into his age-34 campaign. Upton, who was out of baseball in 2018 after being released by the Indians last March, remains a free agent and will presumably have to settle for a minor-league deal if he desires to keep his playing career going.
