Indians signed RHP Jerry Gil to a minor league contract.

The deal includes a spring training invite. Gil, a converted infielder, had a 4.92 ERA and 51/20 K/BB ratio over 64 innings last season with the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate. He will likely function as organizational depth in 2013.

Blue Jays signed RHP Jerry Gil and SS Brian Bocock to minor league contracts.

Gil is a former infielder turned relief pitcher who figures to provide depth at the Triple-A level. Bocock projects as an end-of-the-roster type in Toronto's farm system after a short-lived major league career.

Former infielder Jerry Gil has been converted to a pitcher by the Reds.

Gil is reportedly throwing 93-94 mph at rookie-ball. When asked if Gil has moved to the mound because he has a good slider, manager Dusty Baker said: "He's pitching because he couldn't hit one." Ouch.

Reds reassigned infielder-outfielder Jerry Gil to minor league camp.

The 25-year-old never had a shot at making the team, but had impressed manager Dusty Baker with his defensive versatility. He'll play outfield in Triple-A Louisville.

Non-roster infieler Jerry Gil is out for at least five days with a quad strain.

The oft-injured Gil had no chance of making the Reds, even though his ability to play multiple positions had caught the eye of Dusty Baker, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Reds activated infielder-outfielder Jerry Gil from the 60-day disabled list.

Gil had been on the DL since the beginning of the season, and he underwent Tommy John surgery in May. It's a surprise that he's already ready to play. Perhaps he's just going to be an option as a pinch-hitter and pinch-runner.

Reds transferred infielder Jerry Gil from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Gil is out for the season following Tommy John surgery this month.

Jerry Gil had reconstructive right elbow surgery on Tuesday, ending his season.

Gil can't be too happy about losing a season, but he gets to collect the major league minimum all year long, which isn't so bad. He's still just 24, and he may have a future as a utilityman.

Reds placed infielder-outfielder Jerry Gil on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 23, with a sore right elbow.

The injury kept Gil from competing for a bench spot this spring. He could be a factor as a utilityman by June or July.

Reds acquired infielder-outfielder Jerry Gil from the Diamondbacks for RHP Abe Woody and added him to the 40-man roster.

Gil slugged .468 in Triple-A as a 21-year-old in 2004, but he had injury troubles the following year -- resulting in his removal from Arizona's 40-man roster -- and he spent this year in Double-A, batting .269/.302/.531 with 26 homers, 86 RBI and a 111/18 K/BB ratio in 446 at-bats. His extreme lack of plate discipline is going to hold him back, but since he's versatile and has pretty good pop, there should be room for him on a major league bench one of these years. If the Reds decide to make Ryan Freel their primary right fielder, Gil could take on a utility role.

Diamondbacks sent shortstop Jerry Gil outright to Triple-A Tucson.

That the then 21-year-old Gil was able to slug .468 in Triple-A in 2004 was pretty impressive, but he had just a .299 OBP in the process. He missed most of last season with knee problems, so it's not surprising that he cleared waivers.

Diamondbacks recalled infielder Jerry Gil from Double-A Tennessee and placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

They could have just designated him for assignment, but even though Gil shouldn't have any part in the Diamondbacks' future plans, the team must feel he'll eventually be a useful player for someone. We're skeptical.

Diamondbacks transferred shortstop Jerry Gil from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Gil has been playing with Double-A Tennessee on a rehab assignment as he recovers from a knee injury. The Diamondbacks also sent Justin Wechsler outright to Double-A Tennessee to make room for yesterday's additions.

Jerry Gil started a rehab assignment with the Tennessee Smokies yesterday.

It's a 10-day assignment, so he's getting closer to returning from his knee injury.
