Nationals reassigned LHP Aaron Laffey, OF Tony Campana, RHP Nick Masset, INF Scott Sizemore, and C Jhonatan Solano to minor league camp.
No real surprises among this round of Nationals cuts. Laffey looked pretty good this spring, but he never had much of a chance of actually cracking the Opening Day roster with Washington. The 30-year-old left-hander spent the majority of the 2015 season at Triple-A, and he's probably looking at the same fate for 2016. Mar 28 - 2:14 PM

Nationals signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Laffey spent almost all of 2015 at Triple-A with the Rockies, posting a 3.90 ERA over 90 frames while splitting time between starting and relieving. If he has any shot to stick with the Nats it will be as a reliever, and even then the odds are long.

Rockies sent LHP Aaron Laffey outright to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He predictably cleared waivers after being removed from the 40-man roster. Laffey will stick around as a depth guy.

Rockies designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.

The Rockies needed to clear a roster spot for Christian Bergman, who came off the disabled list on Saturday. It's the second time in the last month he's been DFA'd. The veteran owns a 3.68 ERA in three big league appearances this season.

Rockies purchased the contract of LHP Aaron Laffey from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Laffey was designated for assignment by the Rockies earlier this month, but he stuck with the organization and now gets another shot. He'll act as a lefty specialist.

Rockies sent LHP Aaron Laffey outright to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Laffey cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. He allowed three runs in 2 1/3 innings in his lone appearance for the Rockies.

Rockies designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.

Laffey coughed up three runs in 2 1/3 innings on Friday, his only day on the roster. Colorado no doubt hoped he would soak up some more frames, but Laffey must go to get fellow southpaw Rex Brothers onto the roster.

Rockies purchased the contract of LHP Aaron Laffey from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 30-year-old hurler hasn't appeared in the big leagues since the 2013 season. He posted a 4.91 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 33/17 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings at Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll be used as a spot starter, or long reliever in the bullpen.

Rockies signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

The 29-year-old hurler spent the 2014 season toiling away at Triple-A Syracuse in the Nationals organization, posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 91/37 K/BB ratio over 147 innings. Given the current state of the Rockies starting rotation, he should be able to compete for a spot at the back end of the rotation in spring training.

Nationals signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

The Nats recently lost Chris Young to the Mariners, so they grabbed Laffey to have another veteran arm in the system. Laffey was released by the Orioles earlier in the week and owns a 4.45 ERA for his major league career.
Sat, Mar 29, 2014 06:21:00 PM

Orioles released LHP Aaron Laffey.

Laffey had been in minor league camp. The left-hander holds an unexciting 4.45 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over parts of seven big league seasons, but his experience and left-handedness will get him a shot somewhere.
Fri, Mar 28, 2014 12:59:00 PM

Orioles signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

He did not receive an invitation to spring training. Laffey logged a 7.11 ERA over 12 2/3 unexceptional innings for the Mets and Blue Jays last year. He's supreme organizational depth, nothing more.
Thu, Jan 23, 2014 04:01:00 PM

Brewers signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Laffey was released by the Dodgers earlier this month after posting a 5.61 ERA over his first 11 starts at Triple-A Albuquerque. The left-hander is doubtful to suddenly flourish in the Brewers' minor league system.
Thu, Jul 11, 2013 09:08:00 AM

Dodgers released LHP Aaron Laffey.

Laffey latched on with the Dodgers at the end of April and posted a 5.61 ERA over 11 starts and one relief appearance with the team's Triple-A affiliate. The 28-year-old southpaw will attempt to latch on elsewhere.
Tue, Jul 2, 2013 12:17:00 PM

Dodgers signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

Laffey has been designated for assignment a couple times in the past week but has latched on with another organization quickly again. With the injuries in the Dodgers' rotation, it's a good landing spot for the lefty. He'll report to Triple-A Albuquerque for now.
