Justin Germano has signed with the KT Wiz in Korea.
It will be Germano's third stint with an Asian club. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says he'll earn $180,000 plus $50,000 in incentives, which should be a nice little pay increase after the Mariners released him last week from his minor league deal. Jul 6 - 5:45 PM

Mariners released RHP Justin Germano.

He and left-hander Rafael Perez both opted out of their minor league contracts. Germano pitched well for Triple-A Tacoma, recording a 2.83 ERA over 18 outings before his release. The 32-year-old has made 96 major league appearances with seven different teams.

Mariners signed RHP Justin Germano to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training

Germano appeared in two games with the Rangers this past season, but spent the majority of the year in the minors. The 32-year-old has a lot of experience and is a worthwhile arm to have around, even though he's likely to begin the year in Triple-A.

Justin Germano has elected free agency.

Germano appeared in two games in 2014, both with the Rangers, posting an 11.81 ERA in 5 1/3 innings of work. The last time the right-hander threw meaningful innings in the majors was 2012, but he'll likely get a look in spring from a club.

Dodgers acquired RHP Justin Germano from the Rangers in exchange for cash considerations; assigned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Germano has put up a 4.51 ERA over 21 Triple-A starts and allowed seven runs over 5 1/3 relief innings for the Rangers this season. He's just a depth add.

Justin Germano has accepted his assignment to Triple-A.

Germano had the option of electing free agency, but he will remain within the Rangers' organization instead. He was removed from Texas' 40-man roster last week after surrendering seven earned runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Rangers sent RHP Justin Germano outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

The veteran right-hander now has 72 hours to accept the assignment or refuse and become a free agent. If he accepts, he'll continue to function as organizational bullpen depth for the Rangers.

Rangers designated RHP Justin Germano for assignment.

Unfortunately for him, Germano threw 81 pitches on Tuesday, meaning he wasn't going to be available for a few days. As a result, he's getting swapped out for a fresh arm.
Wed, May 14, 2014 04:11:00 PM

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Justin Germano from Triple-A Round Rock.

The move gives the Rangers a fresh arm for their bullpen. Germano had a 3.41 ERA and 23/5 K/BB ratio in 37 innings over six starts in Triple-A, but owns a 5.29 ERA in the majors. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Justin Germano tossed three scoreless innings in relief on Wednesday against the Rockies.

Germano will serve as organizational depth for the Rangers. Outings like Wednesday's, in which he allowed three hits and struck out three, may help give him a leg up if the Rangers need a substitute during the season.

Rangers signed RHP Justin Germano to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 31-year-old right-hander appeared in just one game for the Blue Jays this past season. He'll head south to act as organizational depth for a new club.

Justin Germano has elected free agency.

The 31-year-old right-hander appeared in just one game for the Blue Jays in 2013, allowing a pair of runs on six hits over two disappointing innings. He'll look to latch on elsewhere this offseason.

Blue Jays sent RHP Justin Germano outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Germano was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for Rickey Romero and didn't draw any interest on waivers. He'll return to a 6.64 ERA in four starts with Toronto's Triple-A affiliate.

Blue Jays designated RHP Justin Germano for assignment.

Friday's starter, Ricky Romero, will be added to the roster before the game to take Germano's spot. The righty allowed two runs in two innings of work for the Jays.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Justin Germano from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Germano has a 6.64 ERA in four starts with Toronto's Triple-A affiliate, so it's not a deserved promotion. The 30-year-old right-hander will serve as bullpen depth.
