Giants reassigned RHP Jose Dominguez to minor league camp.

Dominguez was hoping to carve a spot for himself in the Giants' bullpen but looked sluggish over five Cactus League outings, contributing a 5.79 ERA during that span. San Francisco's roster is down to 39 with a little over a week to go before the regular season.

Giants signed RHP Jose Dominguez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Dominguez owns a 4.82 ERA over 52 appearances in the majors, but he throws really hard and will now try to harness it in the Giants' organization. He'll get a shot next spring to win a bullpen spot.

Dominguez, 26, was added to the 40-man roster back in July and went on to post a 5.05 ERA and 20/17 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 innings with the big club. The move gives the Padres some extra wiggle room this offseason.

Padres signed RHP Jose Dominguez to a minor league contract.

Dominguez made four appearances with the Rays this past season and posted an ugly 6.18 ERA and 25/20 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings in Triple-A. The hard-throwing 25-year-old will provide some bullpen depth in the minors.

Rays sent RHP Jose Dominguez outright to Triple-A Durham.

Dominguez was designated for assignment earlier in the week to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Drew Smyly. He'll continue to provide organizational bullpen depth for the Rays.

Rays designated RHP Jose Dominguez for assignment.

Jose Dominguez was placed on Triple-A Durham's disabled list due to right shoulder tightness.

It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously Dominguez won't be an option for the Rays for a while. The righty didn't allow a run in his 5 2/3 innings with the big league club last month.

Rays optioned RHP Jose Dominguez to Triple-A Durham.

The 24-year-old didn't allow a run in his 5 2/3 innings with the big league club, posting a 5/2 K/BB ratio. He should get another opportunity in Tampa Bay relatively soon.

Rays recalled RHP Jose Dominguez from Triple-A Durham.

He takes Kirby Yates' spot on the roster. Dominguez allowed 10 earned runs over 14 2/3 innings the last two seasons with the Dodgers before arriving in Tampa over the winter in the Joel Peralta deal. The hard thrower will work in middle relief.

Jose Dominguez struck out two in a perfect sixth inning Sunday versus the Phillies.

The flame-throwing Dominguez wouldn't seem to have much chance of cracking the Rays pen this spring, but he could put himself in line for an early-season callup with a strong showing. The 24-year-old was acquired from the Dodgers in November in the Joel Peralta deal.
Sun, Mar 8, 2015 05:05:00 PM

Rays acquired RHPs Jose Dominguez and Greg Harris from the Dodgers in exchange for RHP Joel Peralta and LHP Adam Liberatore.

Dominguez hasn't fared well in his brief time in the majors, but he can touch triple-digits on the radar gun, which obviously makes him quite appealing. He should crack the Rays' Opening Day bullpen.

Dodgers optioned RHP Jose Dominguez to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dominguez has already been up and down multiple times this year and that trend will likely continue. He has allowed eight earned runs in 6 1/3 innings.
