Orioles signed INF Rey Navarro a one-year contract.
Navarro, 24, batted .282/.343/.435 in the Reds' minor league system this past season. He'll attempt to win a bench job during spring training.
Rays designated INF/OF Sean Rodriguez for assignment.
Due another raise through arbitration, Rodriguez was considered a likely non-tender candidate, so the Rays simply decided to cut ties a little bit early. He could draw interest on waivers due to his versatility. Rodriguez batted .211/.258/.443 with 12 home runs over 259 plate appearances this past season.
Rays signed RHP Ernesto Frieri to a one-year, $800,000 contract.
Frieri could make as much as $3.15 million with incentives. The 29-year-old is coming off a nightmare year in which he posted a 7.34 ERA over 48 appearances between the Angels and Pirates, but he has enjoyed great success in the past. Known for their success with reclamation projects, the Rays will attempt to strike gold once again.
Orioles acquired LHP Scott Barnes from the Indians for cash considerations.
Barnes was designated for assignment by the Indians over the weekend after the acquisition of Charles Brewer. The 27-year-old southpaw appeared in 22 games in the majors from 2012-2013 and had a 3.69 ERA and 35/16 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level this past season.
Reds signed OF Brennan Boesch to a minor league contract.
Boesch batted .187/.203/.293 with two home runs over 79 plate appearances with the Angels this past season. The 29-year-old could compete for a bench job in the spring.
