Edward Mujica has elected free agency.
The 33-year-old hurler posted a 9.95 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 7/0 K/BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings with the Tigers in 2017. He has proven in the past to be a reliable late-game reliever, so there should be a few teams willing to kick the tires on him this winter. Oct 21 - 12:55 PM

Tigers sent RHP Edward Mujica outright to Triple-A Toledo.

As expected, Mujica cleared waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. The veteran reliever gave up seven runs over 6 1/3 innings during his brief time with the Tigers.

Tigers designated RHP Edward Mujica for assignment.

Mujia allowed seven earned runs on 11 hits (four homers) over 6 1/3 innings out of the Tigers' bullpen. The 33-year-old right-hander will probably pass through waivers unclaimed.
Aug 13 - 10:00 AM

Tigers purchased the contract of RHP Edward Mujica from Triple-A Toledo.

Mujica will join Detroit's bullpen ahead of Thursday night's series opener against the Orioles after registering a 2.35 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 38/5 K/BB ratio over 46 innings this summer with Triple-A Toledo. The 33-year-old right-hander last appeared in a major league game in 2015.
Aug 3 - 2:37 PM

Edward Mujica is being promoted to the Tigers' major league roster.

He should arrive before Thursday night's series opener at Baltimore's Camden Yards. Mujica signed a minor league contract with Detroit in December and has registered a strong 2.35 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 38/5 K/BB ratio over 46 innings this season with Triple-A Toledo. If all goes well, the veteran right-hander could quickly move into a setup role.
Aug 3 - 11:38 AM

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.

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.
Thu, Jul 14, 2016 10:46:00 AM

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.
Tue, Mar 29, 2016 08:39:00 AM

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.
Fri, Mar 11, 2016 04:42:00 PM

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.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 11:54:00 AM

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.
