White Sox signed INF Andy LaRoche to a minor league contract.

LaRoche joins his brother Adam who signed as a free agent with the White Sox this winter. The 31-year-old has appeared in just one major league game since the 2011 season. He hit .248/.309/.396 with five homers and 29 RBI in 60 games at Triple-A Buffalo in 2014.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of INF Andy LaRoche from Triple-A Buffalo.

LaRoche hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011 but earned a call-up after batting .282/.358/.463 with seven homers and 32 RBI at Buffalo. He'll provide depth at third base with Brett Lawrie (ankle) on the shelf.

The Blue Jays are expected to call up Andy LaRoche prior to Friday's game.

Anthony Gose has already been sent down to clear room on the roster for LaRoche, who will provide depth at third base with Brett Lawrie (ankle) on the shelf. LaRoche is batting .282/.358/.463 with seven homers and 32 RBI at Triple-A Buffalo this season. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2011.

Andy LaRoche delivered a solo homer to plate the only run of the game as the Blue Jays edged Yankees split-squad Thursday.

LaRoche has two homers and a double in nine at-bats this spring. He's not really a candidate to make the Blue Jays unless injuries strike, but he'll get more chances to impress other teams with Brett Lawrie set to play in the WBC for Canada next month.

Blue Jays non-roster infielder Andy LaRoche homered and doubled Tuesday against the Twins.

The Jays are getting really nice results so far from infielders LaRoche, Lance Zawadzki and Ryan Goins, none of whom have any real chance of cracking the major league roster. LaRoche has to hope to impress some other teams this spring.
Tue, Feb 26, 2013 04:42:00 PM

Blue Jays signed INF Andy LaRoche to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

LaRoche hasn't appeared in the major leagues since the 2011 season, when he posted a brutal .247/.320/.333 batting line in 104 plate appearances with the A's. He is doubtful to make any sort of impact in Toronto.
Wed, Jan 30, 2013 04:04:00 PM

Andy LaRoche has elected free agency.

The 29-year-old former top prospect failed to play a game at the major league level in 2012, hitting .251/.335/.422 with 12 homers and 41 RBI between two organizations at the Triple-A level. He'll search for a new opportunity on the free agent market.

LaRoche was released by the Indians earlier this week after hitting just .234/.331/.372 with five homers and a .704 OPS over 46 games with Triple-A Columbus. The 28-year-old former top prospect will function as organizational depth.
