Jean Machi is not expected to be present for Wednesday's workout.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said he believes Machi is dealing with a paperwork issue. It probably won't keep him out of camp for long. Machi signed a minor league deal with Seattle over the winter after posting a 3.65 ERA and 53/17 K/BB ratio over 61 2/3 innings in Triple-A last season between the Cubs and Giants.

Mariners signed RHP Jean Machi to a minor league contract.

Machi spent the entire 2016 season at Triple-A, posting a 3.65 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 53/17 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings between the Pacific Coast League affiliates of the Cubs and Giants. The veteran right-hander could see some action out of the Seattle bullpen in 2017.

Giants signed RHP Jean Machi to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

Machi was cut from the Cubs' Triple-A team last week and then got arrested hours later for public intoxication and public urination outside a restaurant in Des Moines, Iowa. He'll try to rehabilitate his career with the Giants, a team he spent three-and-a-half years with.

Jean Machi is close to a minor league agreement with the Giants.

Machi was released from the Cubs' Triple-A team on June 9 and got arrested later that night for public intoxication and public urination outside a restaurant in Des Moines, Iowa. He was with the Giants from 2012 until the middle of 2015. The right-hander will head to Triple-A Sacramento once the minor league contract is finalized.

Cubs released RHP Jean Machi.

Machi was arrested early Thursday morning in Des Moines, Iowa for public intoxication and public urination. According to the Des Moines Register, the right-hander "was spotted urinating on the bumper of a car owned by an employee of the Stuffed Olive" restaurant and then asked the owner of that vehicle if he wanted to fight. A spokesperson with the Triple-A Iowa Cubs said Machi was released prior to the incident.

Cubs signed RHP Jean Machi to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The signing was reported on Twitter by Machi's agent Felix Olivo. While he endured a rough 2015 campaign, the 33-year-old owns a career 3.47 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 148/53 K/BB ratio over 184 big league innings. He makes for a very nice low-cost addition to the Cubs.

Jean Machi has elected free agency.

The Red Sox removed Machi from the 40-man roster and he's decided to look for a job elsewhere. The reliever had a disappointing 2015, but he has a career ERA of 3.47 and has a chance to bounce back in 2016 wherever he ends up.

Jean Machi was ejected from Wednesday's game after throwing at Steven Souza.

Machi served up a solo homer to Asdrubal Cabrera, and on the next pitch he came high and tight on Souza, prompting his ejection. Machi had faced only Cabrera in the game before being tossed.

Jean Machi allowed a run in the ninth inning but escaped with his fourth save as the Red Sox won 4-3 over the Yankees on Monday.

Machi gave up a hit and three walks and had the go-ahead run on second base, but he struck out Greg Bird and got Didi Gregorius to fly out to end the game. Machi has had poor results this year but the Red Sox like him as their go-to closer with Koji Uehara on the shelf. With his new team, Machi is 4-for-4 in save opportunities with a 5.68 ERA and a 10/7 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings.

Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that Jean Machi has overtaken Junichi Tazawa as the club's closer.

It comes as no surprise, as Tazawa was pulled from a save opportunity on Friday and then Machi nailed down a save on Saturday. Machi is certainly no cinch in the role given his 5.21 ERA on the season, but obviously he needs to be owned in fantasy leagues while he's being used in the ninth inning.

Jean Machi earned his third save of the season as the Red Sox bested the Mets on Saturday.

Machi retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning at Citi Field. This comes after a brutal outing from Junichi Tazawa on Friday. Machi appears to be the guy to own right now in the Boston 'pen.

Jean Machi allowed two runs in the ninth inning but still got the save as the Red Sox topped the White Sox 5-4 on Monday.

Machi allowed a double and two singles, which led to two runs. He was able to get Carlos Sanchez to foul out to end the game before the White Sox could push across the tying run. The Red Sox haven't had many save situations, but Machi and Junichi Tazawa have been getting them when they have become available since Koji Uehara landed on the disabled list. The right-hander hasn't been good this year, but should be picked up in fantasy leagues for the odd save.

Red Sox manager John Farrell has indicated that Jean Machi will serve as the team's closer with Koji Uehara (wrist) ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Junichi Tazawa is another possibility, but it sounds like Farrell would rather keep him more flexible in a setup role. The heavily-used Tazawa has been showing signs of fatigue since the All-Star break anyway. Machi, who was claimed off waivers from the Giants in late July, holds a 3.33 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 164 2/3 career major league innings. He's the guy to own right now in the Boston bullpen.

Red Sox claimed RHP Jean Machi off waivers from the Giants.

Machi was recently designated for assignment by the Giants after struggling to the tune of a 5.14 ERA over 33 appearances this season. The 33-year-old was a useful bullpen piece from 2013-2014, so the Red Sox will try to get him turned around.
