Nationals sent INF Matt Reynolds outright to Triple-A Fresno.

Reynolds was designated for assignment by the Nationals last week to clear a roster spot for Brian Dozier. The 28-year-old Reynolds holds a weak .223/.295/.340 career batting line over 127 major league games.

ESPN's Jeff Passan reports that the Yankees have a three-year, $25 million agreement in place with free agent reliever Adam Ottavino.

It's only pending a physical exam. Ottavino adds another lethal arm to the Yankees' bullpen, joining Aroldis Chapman, Dellin Betances, Adam Ottavino, Zach Britton, and Chad Green in what should be the most dominant relief corps in baseball. Ottavino, 33, registered a spectacular 2.43 ERA (193 ERA+) with 112 strikeouts over 77 2/3 innings with the Rockies last season. He'll likely work in a setup or mid-inning role in New York.

Alex Reyes (lat) has been throwing for the last couple of weeks at the Cardinals' spring training complex in Jupiter, Florida.

"He is currently long-tossing without limitation and beginning to practice his pitching mechanics," Cardinals president John Mozeliak wrote in an email to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "(He) will likely start mound progression in the next 1-2 weeks." Reyes appears poised to enter camp with a clean bill of health after logging just four major league innings over the last two seasons due to lat and elbow injuries. He will be looked at for a range of different roles this spring, including starting pitcher and high-leverage reliever. The young right-hander warrants monitoring in all standard fantasy leagues.

Nationals signed RHP Scott Copeland to a minor league contract.

Copeland made one scoreless relief appearance with the Mets in 2018 and had a 3.43 ERA in 22 starts between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas. The 31-year-old right-hander could turn out to be a nice depth piece for Washington this summer, but he probably won't be in consideration for the Opening Day roster.
Jan 16 - 10:15 PM

Dodgers signed RHP Luis Vasquez to a minor league contract.

Vasquez will turn 33 years old in April and has never appeared in a game at the MLB level. He holds an uninspiring 5.49 ERA in 306 2/3 career minor league frames.
Jan 16 - 10:03 PM

Reds signed RHP Johendi Jiminian to a minor league contract.

Jiminian, a 26-year-old native of the Dominican Republic, posted a 3.49 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 52/31 K/BB ratio over 69 2/3 innings (16 starts) last season with the Double-A affiliate of the Mariners. He will be organizational pitching depth for Cincinnati.
Jan 16 - 9:59 PM

Cubs signed OF Evan Marzilli to a minor league contract.

Marzilli, who turns 28 years old this March, batted .260/.345/.382 with two home runs and one stolen base in 148 plate appearances last season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Diamondbacks. He will function as minor league outfield depth for the Cubs in 2019.
Jan 16 - 9:56 PM

Diamondbacks signed RHP Ryan Newell to a minor league contract.

Newell spent the first half of the 2018 season serving out an 80-game PED suspension before delivering a 1.93 ERA in 14 innings of relief with the Double-A affiliate of the Marlins. The 27-year-old former seventh-round pick has yet to appear in a major league game.
