Tigers signed RHP Edward Mujica to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Mujica was released three different times last season -- twice by the Phillies, once by the Royals -- and did not log a single appearance at the major league level. The former closer will function as organizational relief depth for Detroit in 2017. He had a 4.75 ERA in 47 1/3 innings between the A's and Red Sox in 2015. Thu, Dec 29, 2016 12:39:00 PM

Twins signed RHP Edward Mujica to a minor league contract.

Mujica was let go by the Royals earlier this month. The 32-year-old has pitched to a disappointing 4.76 ERA over 45 minor league appearances this year. He'll report to Triple-A Rochester.

Royals released RHP Edward Mujica.

Mujica hooked up with the Royals on a minor league contract in mid-July after being released by the Phillies. In 12 innings at Triple-A Omaha in the defending champs' system, the veteran right-hander was roughed up for 11 runs on 17 hits over 12 innings. He has not pitched in the majors since he posted a 4.75 ERA while splitting time between the A's and Red Sox over a combined 47 1/3 innings in 2015.

Royals signed RHP Edward Mujica to a minor league contract.

Mujica requested his release from the Phillies on July 14 after failing to earn a promotion to the major league despite posting a decent 3.69 ERA, 1.179 WHIP, and 27/4 K/BB ratio in 39 innings this season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He could get a shot soon in Kansas City. For now, the veteran righty reports to Triple-A Omaha.

Phillies released RHP Edward Mujica.

Mujica requested his release after going three-and-a-half months without a promotion to the major leagues. He had registered a 3.69 ERA, 1.179 WHIP, and 27/4 K/BB ratio in 39 innings this season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Some team will give him a shot, though it will probably have to come on another non-guaranteed minor league deal.

Phillies re-signed Edward Mujica to a minor league contract.

Mujica spent around 32 hours on the free agent market before deciding to return to the Phillies, who released him from camp on Tuesday morning. He'll report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley when the 2016 season begins and try to work his way up to the major league roster. The veteran right-hander had a decent showing this spring in Grapefruit League play.

Phillies released RHP Edward Mujica.

Mujica had an opt-out in his minor league contract and the Phillies ultimately decided not to keep him. The veteran reliever posted a 2.16 ERA with seven strikeouts and two walks over 8 1/3 innings. It appears that the club's final bullpen spot will come down to Ernesto Frieri and Andrew Bailey.

Edward Mujica worked a scoreless inning Friday in his second appearance of the spring.

Mujica might be in the mix for closing duties in Philly, though it'd make more sense if he's employed as a setup man. That seems the likely scenario.

Phillies signed RHP Edward Mujica to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Mujica registered an ugly 4.75 ERA, and 30/10 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings this summer between the Red Sox and A's. The 31-year-old right-hander will now try to breathe some life back into his career with the rebuilding Phillies. He'll likely become midseason trade bait if he does indeed turn things around.

Edward Mujica (hamstring) returned to action on Sunday, hurling a scoreless inning in a loss to the Giants.

Mujica retired all three hitters he faced in order. He missed nearly two weeks of action due to his strained right hamstring. The 31-year-old right-hander owns an underwhelming 4.40 ERA and 29/6 K/BB ratio over 45 innings between the A's and Red Sox this season.

Edward Mujica (hamstring) threw off a mound Wednesday without issue.

Mujica has been on the shelf for the last 10 days with a strained right hamstring, but he should now be getting close. The veteran right-hander owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 29/6 K/BB ratio in 44 innings this season between the Red Sox and Athletics.
Thu, Sep 24, 2015 02:17:00 PM

Edward Mujica (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined for a while.

Mujica departed Sunday's game with a strained right hamstring. With just three weeks left in the season, it's possible he's thrown his last pitch of 2015.
Mon, Sep 14, 2015 06:09:00 PM

Edward Mujica was forced to leave Sunday's game with an apparent leg injury.

He suffered the injury while trying to cover first base in the fifth inning. He will presumably head for X-rays.

Edward Mujica recorded the final three outs of Saturday's defeat of the Astros to earn his first save with the A's.

Drew Pomeranz opened the ninth inning, but he was promptly lifted after issuing a leadoff walk to Jed Lowrie. Mujica entered and shut down the next three batters in order. He might be the guy to own in the Oakland bullpen with Tyler Clippard now pitching for the Mets. Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is still a week or two away.

Edward Mujica gave up a run in a tie game Friday to take a loss against the Indians.

Mujica is Oakland's closer for now following the Tyler Clippard trade, but he could be part of an August deal if anyone wants him and he could be replaced by Sean Doolittle for the final month if everything goes well with the left-hander's rehab. So, while Mujica has some value in mixed leagues right now, he's not exactly someone to count on.
