Twins signed RHP Jeffrey Ames to a minor league contract.

Ames posted a 4.74 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 49/22 K/BB ratio in 38 innings last season between the Double-A and Triple-A levels. The 27-year-old right-hander will operate as organizational bullpen depth for Minnesota in 2019.

Slade Heathcott has retired from baseball at age 28.

Heathcott was released by the Athletics last May and went on to post a rough .194/.297/.226 batting line in 37 plate appearances with independent-league Sugar Land Skeeters. The former first-round pick of the Yankees appeared in just 17 total major league games in his career, all during the 2015 season.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Tyler Matzek to a minor league contract.

Matzek spent the 2018 season with the Texas AirHogs of the independent American Association, after getting released from Mariners camp in March. The left-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2015.

Angels designated RHP Parker Bridwell for assignment.

Bridwell was designated for assignment by the Angels in November before getting claimed off waivers by the Yankees and then claimed right back by Anaheim. The roller coaster offseason continues for the 27-year-old right-hander, who surrendered 13 earned runs over 6 2/3 major league innings last season with the Halos. Bridwell had a pretty strong showing as a starter in 2017 and he is only 27 years old, so there might be yet another claim coming.

Twins acquired INF Daniel Ozoria from the Angels for RHP John Curtiss.

Orozia batted just .195/.248/.220 with zero home runs in 216 plate appearances last summer between two different rookie-level affiliates of the Angels. The 18-year-old Dominican infielder is not much of a prospect, but at least the Twins got something for Curtiss, who had been designated for assignment.

Angels acquired RHP John Curtiss from the Twins for INF Daniel Ozoria.

Curtiss was designated for assignment by Minnesota on Monday to open up a 40-man roster spot for newly-signed reliever Blake Parker. Curtiss, 25, holds a 7.20 ERA in 17 career appearances at the MLB level, but he throws hard and has posted some promising numbers in the upper minor leagues. He'll probably get a look out of the bullpen in Anaheim at some point in 2019.

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Phillies "have visions" of signing Bryce Harper, Dallas Keuchel, and Craig Kimbrel.

It would be a heck of a late-offseason coup. Phillies higher-ups had a lengthy in-person meeting with Harper on Saturday in his hometown of Las Vegas, and it apparently went so well that the team has shifted its primary focus more toward Harper than Manny Machado. Fancred's Jon Heyman hears that the Philadelphia front office has either already made a formal offer to the 26-year-old outfielder or will make one very soon. Keuchel and Kimbrel should come relatively cheap given the current sad state of MLB free agency, though a package of all three would still likely cost more than $400 million in total guarantees.

Mets signed INF Jed Lowrie to a two-year, $20 million contract.

The deal was agreed to last Thursday and then finalized Tuesday evening after Lowrie passed the necessary pre-signing physical. He will be introduced at a press conference at Citi Field on Wednesday. The versatile veteran is expected to play all around the infield for the Mets and he should regularly hit near the very top of their lineup. Lowrie, 34, posted a cool .801 OPS with 23 home runs and 99 RBI over 157 games last season with the Athletics.
