Angels signed LHP Edward Paredes to a minor league contract.
Paredes put up a cool 3.32 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 73/22 K/BB ratio in 57 innings this summer for the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League. The 29-year-old southpaw has never pitched in a major league game and is no more than organizational depth for the Halos.
Braves signed RHP Joel de la Cruz to a minor league contract.
The 26-year-old right-hander had a 3.31 ERA, 1.245 WHIP, and 42/22 K/BB ratio in 84 1/3 innings this past season between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre -- minor league affiliates of the Yankees. He has never appeared in a major league game, but de la Cruz will have a decent shot at changing that with the rapidly-rebuilding Braves.
Diamondbacks signed UTIL Anthony Seratelli to a minor league contract.
Seratelli batted just .183/.329/.233 in 74 plate appearances this year for the Seibu Lions of the Japanese Pacific League, but he can play all around the diamond defensively. The 32-year-old will probably be stationed at Triple-A Reno when the 2016 season begins.
Cardinals signed RHP Deck McGuire to a minor league contract.
McGuire registered a 3.69 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 119/36 K/BB ratio in 136 2/3 innings this year between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City -- affiliates of the Dodgers. He probably won't see any action for a Cardinals team that is stocked with high quality arms.
Pirates signed RHP Curtis Partch to a minor league contract.
Partch posted a decent 3.53 ERA and 81/26 K/BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings this summer for the Triple-A affiliate of the Giants. He'll act as relief depth now for Pittsburgh.
