Cardinals signed RHP Deck McGuire to a minor league contract.
McGuire registered a 3.69 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 119/36 K/BB ratio in 136 2/3 innings this year between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City -- affiliates of the Dodgers. He probably won't see any action at the major league level for a Cardinals team that is stocked with high quality arms. Nov 26 - 12:00 PM

Athletics sent RHP Deck McGuire outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the addition of Adam Dunn. McGuire has had a rough year at the Triple-A level this season, posting a 5.10 ERA with just 101 strikeouts over 150 innings.

Athletics acquired RHP Deck McGuire from the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

McGuire, who was designated for assignment last week, was the No. 11 overall pick in 2010 but hasn't developed as hoped. The 25-year-old has put up a 4.21 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 115 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A.

Blue Jays designated RHP Deck McGuire for assignment.

McGuire, the 11th overall pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, had an underwhelming 4.21 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 115 1/3 innings this season between Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Buffalo. He may draw interest on waivers.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Deck McGuire from Double-A New Hampshire.

McGuire is now on Toronto's 40-man roster and is protected from December's Rule 5 Draft. A former first round pick from 2010, the 24-year-old had a 4.86 ERA and 143/59 K/BB ratio over 157 1/3 innings in Double-A this past season.

Blue Jays agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Deck McGuire.

McGuire will receive a $2 million signing bonus from the club. The 21-year-old right-hander was selected out of Georgia Tech with the No. 11 pick. He doesn't project as a front-end starter in the major leagues, but he was one of the safer arms available on draft day.

Blue Jays took Georgia Tech RHP Deck McGuire with the 11th pick.

McGuire, 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds, is a very polished college arm, making him a pretty typical Blue Jays pick. He probably won't be more than a No. 3, but he should arrive quickly and maybe help Toronto next year. He throws in the low-90s and has a very good changeup.
