Athletics signed LHP Ryan Verdugo to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old southpaw split the 2014 season between the Royals and Red Sox organizations, compiling a 3.94 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 82/25 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings at Triple-A. Billy Beane continues to stockpile quality organizational bullpen depth.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Twins have won the bidding on Korean southpaw Hyeon-jong Yang.

No word yet on what the winning bid amount was, but it's believed to be far less than the Kia Tigers were hoping for when posting Yang. The Twins now have an exclusive 30-day window to negotiate a contract with Yang, and Berardino reports that the two sides are already closing in on a deal.

Twins signed INF Argenis Diaz to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old infielder bounced around during the 2014 season, slashing .267/.319/.336 across 111 minor league games over three teams between the Reds and Diamondbacks organizations. He's nothing more than additional infield depth for the Twins.
Nov 22 - 11:15 AM

Giants re-signed C Guillermo Quiroz to a minor league contract.

Nov 22 - 10:41 AM

Rays re-signed RHP Bryce Stowell to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old right-hander was terrific during the 2014 campaign, compiling a 1.92 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 55/21 K/BB ratio over 51 2/3 innings between Double-A Montgomery and Triple-A Durham. He'll continue to provide organizational bullpen depth for the Rays.
Nov 22 - 10:29 AM

The 25-year-old hurler spent the 2014 season in the Yankees organization, posting a 4.20 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 93/29 K/BB ratio over 85 2/3 innings between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He'll add organizational bullpen depth for the Braves.
Nov 22 - 10:18 AM

Pirates re-signed C Miguel Perez to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old did not play during the 2014 season, serving as a player-coach in the Pirates organization at Low-A West Virginia. He's expected to function in a similar role someplace in the Pirates organization in 2015.
Nov 22 - 10:14 AM

Pirates signed C Sebastian Valle to a minor league contract.

The 24-year-old backstop heads across the state after spending his first eight minor league seasons in the Phillies organization. Better regarded for his defensive prowess than his offensive skillset, Valle slashed just .238/.262/.346 with five homers and 32 RBI in 75 games between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley in 2014.
Nov 22 - 10:11 AM

Dodgers signed INF Buck Britton to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old has spent his entire seven-year minor league career to this point in the Orioles organization. He had a strong 2014 season where he slashed .289/.345/.453 with 15 homers and 67 RBI in 120 games between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk. He represents a nice depth signing for the Dodgers.
Nov 22 - 10:08 AM

Giants re-signed OF Javier Herrera to a minor league contract.

The 29-year-old outfielder and former top prospect has spent the past two seasons in the Giants organization, but only appeared in 13 games during the 2014 season due to injuries. He's nothing more than organizational depth at this point.
Nov 22 - 10:04 AM

Rays signed INF Allan Dykstra to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old is coming off a strong 2014 season where he hit .280/.426/.504 with 16 homers and 74 RBI in 117 games at Triple-A Las Vegas. With his powerful right-handed bat and strong plate discipline, there's a strong chance that he could make his big league debut for the Rays during the 2015 season.
Nov 22 - 9:55 AM

Athletics signed LHP Jim Fuller to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old spent the 2014 season in the Twins organization where he posted a solid 2.41 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 68/30 K/BB ratio over 56 innings at Double-A New Britain. He'll add to the organizational bullpen depth for the A's.
Nov 22 - 9:51 AM

Reds signed INF Josh Satin to a minor league contract.

The deal is expected to include an invitation to major league spring training. The 29-year-old struggled mightily in his 25 games with the Mets in 2014, slashing a mere .086/.143/.399 with a 14/6 K/BB ratio in 35 at-bats. He'll have a chance to compete for a reserve role on the Reds bench.
Nov 22 - 9:46 AM

Rockies re-signed RHP Leuris Gomez to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old hurler has spent his entire six-year minor league career in the Rockies organization. He spent the majority of the 2014 campaign at Triple-A Colorado Springs where he compiled a 4.47 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 66/33 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings.
Nov 22 - 9:42 AM
