Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Brewers are signing LHP Dan Jennings to a one-year deal.

The deal is pending a physical. Jennings was released by the Rays after being informed that he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster. The 31-year-old had a 3.45 ERA over 77 appearances for the Rays and White Sox in 2017. He'll serve in the middle of the Milwaukee bullpen, mostly against left-handed hitters but with the ability to get right-handers out, too.

Rays released LHP Dan Jennings.

This comes after Jennings was informed that he wasn't making the Opening Day roster. According to Marc Topkin of Tampa Bay Times, the Rays will only be responsible for one-quarter of his $2.375 million contract for 2018. Jennings turns 31 in April and posted a 3.45 ERA over 77 appearances between the Rays and White Sox last year.

Dan Jennings has been informed that he will not be on the Opening Day roster.

Jennings and Daniel Hudson were both informed they wouldn't make the team, with Ryan Yarbrough, Andrew Kittredge and Yonny Chirinos instead making the Tampa Bay staff. He's owed $2.375 million for 2018, so it'll be interesting to see if anyone puts in a claim on the 30-year-old reliever.

Rays and LHP Dan Jennings avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.375 million contract.

Jennings was arbitration-eligible for the second time. The southpaw posted a 3.45 ERA across 77 relief appearances for the White Sox and Rays last season.

Rays acquired LHP Dan Jennings from the White Sox for 1B Casey Gillaspie.

Yet another White Sox reliever out the door. Jennings had registered a 3.45 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 38/19 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings this season for Chicago and will now slide into a left-handed setup role with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old southpaw is under contractual control through 2019.

White Sox and LHP Dan Jennings avoid arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

He made $810,000 last year and gets a nice bump in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The 29-year-old lefthander comes off an excellent season in which he put up a 2.08 ERA in 60 2/3 innings. He has a 2.74 career ERA in 233 games. Despite his effectiveness he has tallied only one save and 20 holds spread over five seasons.

White Sox and LHP Dan Jennings avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $810,000 contract.

He threw a scoreless inning in his first appearance. Miraculously, Jennings didn't experience a serious injury after being hit in the head by a line drive a couple weeks ago. The Marlins might hold him out until rosters expand, but it appears that he'll be fine.

Dan Jennings (concussion) said Thursday that he's not experiencing any concussion symptoms.

He rode the stationary bike without incident on Wednesday and planned to run on the treadmill Thursday. Jennings has also not demonstrated sensitivity to noise or light. "I feel pretty normal, which all things considered is a shock, a surprise and a relief," Jennings said. "I feel like I can function and do everything I could do before. That's an absolute relief." Jennings expects to be activated next month.
