Twins signed LHP Wil Ledezma to a minor league contract.

The 33-year-old southpaw hasn't appeared in a major league game since he was a member of the Blue Jays during the 2011 season. He spent the 2014 campaign toeing the slab for Yucatan in the Mexican League where he compiled a 1.91 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 29/9 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings. He could emerge as situational left-hander in Minnesota.

Tigers released LHP Wil Ledezma.

Ledezma signed a minor league contract with Detroit in March after spending the 2013 season as a reliever for the Chibba Lotte Marines in Japan. He had good numbers over there, and a return to Nippon Professional Baseball might be his best option at this point.

Tigers signed LHP Wil Ledezma to a minor league contract.

It's a return to the Tigers organization for the 33-year-old southpaw who caught on as a Rule-5 draftee in 2003. He spent the 2013 season as a reliever for Chiba Lotte in Japan's Pacific League where he posted a 3.23 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 22/13 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings. He's nothing more than organizational depth at the moment.

Wil Ledezma has signed with Chiba Lotte of the Japanese Pacific League.

Ledezma struck out 48 over 37 1/3 innings for Triple-A Albuquerque this season but also held a 6.99 ERA. The 31-year-old will try his luck overseas.

Dodgers signed LHP Wil Ledezma to a minor league contract.

The signing was reported last month but just recently became official. Ledezma gave up 10 runs over six innings this season for the Blue Jays but had a lot more success at Triple-A, boasting a 64/19 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. He'll get a spring training invite but will surely be at Triple-A to start the season.

Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that the Dodgers are expected to sign Wil Ledezma to a minor league contract.

The deal isn't official yet, but it appears to just be a matter of dotting the i's and crossing the t's at this point. Ledezma gave up 10 runs over six innings this season for the Blue Jays but had a lot more success at Triple-A, boasting a 64/19 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. He'll likely compete for a bullpen spot in spring training.

Blue Jays designated LHP Wil Ledezma for assignment.

He had a 7.20 ERA in five innings with the Jays this season. The 30-year-old left-hander should pass through waivers and continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth at the Triple-A level. A corresponding roster move by Toronto will be announced on Monday.
Sun, Aug 28, 2011 07:38:00 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Wil Ledezma from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ledezma spent a couple weeks in the major leagues earlier this season, allowing three earned runs in three innings of relief. He'll act merely as bullpen depth.

Blue Jays sent LHP Wil Ledezma outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ledezma allowed three earned runs in three innings of relief for the big league Jays. The 30-year-old left-hander will continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth.
Tue, Aug 9, 2011 01:53:00 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Wil Ledezma from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ledezma holds a 5.26 ERA and 1.58 WHIP across 187 career major league games, but he has struck out 63 in 46 2/3 relief innings for Las Vegas this season. He'll likely be used mainly in a mop-up role.

Blue Jays sent LHP Wil Ledezma outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Ledezma was just claimed off waivers from the Pirates last week. He'll still receive an invite to spring training as a non-roster invitee. The southpaw posted a 6.86 ERA over 27 relief appearances with the Pirates last season, but had impressive numbers with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Blue Jays claimed LHP Wil Ledezma off waivers from the Pirates.

Ledezma, who turns 30 later this month, was designated for assignment by the Pirates before the holidays. While the southpaw posted a 0.94 ERA and 50/19 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings with Triple-A Indianapolis last season, he had a 6.86 ERA over 27 relief appearances with the Pirates.

Pirates designated LHP Wil Ledezma for assignment.

It's odd that the Pirates didn't just non-tender him in the first place last month. Ledezma was cleared to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Aaron Thompson, who was claimed off waivers from the Nationals. The southpaw posted a 6.86 ERA and 22/6 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings this past season.
Thu, Dec 23, 2010 02:43:00 PM

The Pirates and LHP Wilfredo Ledezma avoided arbitration Wednesday by agreeing to a one-year contract.

No word yet on how much Ledezma will make on the deal. He was inked to a minor league contract last offseason and threw up some really good numbers at the Triple-A level. The Bucs are hoping that he will continue to make progress and eventually become a reliable middle reliever.
