Orioles claimed INF/OF Rio Ruiz off waivers from the Braves.

Ruiz, 24, has batted just .189/.282/.302 over 195 plate appearances during his sporadic chances in the majors. However, he's in a better situation for at-bats in Baltimore and will be reunited with new Orioles GM Mike Elias, who drafted him while working for the Astros.

Reds claimed LHP Robby Scott off waivers from the Red Sox.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic previously reported that Scott was on his way to the Red Sox, but it turns out that it's a straight waiver claim. The 29-year-old southpaw struggled with an 8.10 ERA in nine appearances with the Red Sox in 2018, but he posted a 1.86 ERA over 45 appearances and had a good year in the majors in 2017. He's a decent enough flier for Cincinnati's bullpen.

Tom Wilhelmsen has announced his retirement from his playing career.

Wilhelmsen, who turns 35 this month, split this past season between independent ball and the Mexican League. He pitched for the Diamondbacks in 2017, but he's best known for his time with the Mariners. Wilhelmsen will finish his career with a 3.53 ERA and 68 saves over 344 appearances.

Mariners claimed INF/RHP Kaleb Cowart off waivers from the Angels.

Cowart was once a top-100 prospect, but he owns a disappointing .177/.241/.293 batting line over 380 plate appearances in the majors. Interestingly, the Mariners are saying that Cowart will be both a position player and a pitcher in the spring. The 26-year-old has never pitched in professional ball.

Mariners signed C Jose Lobaton to a minor league contract.

Lobaton, 34, appeared in 22 games with the Mets this past season while posting a weak .143/.246/.224 batting line in 57 plate appearances. He's organizational depth at this point of his career.

Giants claimed OF Mike Gerber off waivers from the Tigers.

The 26-year-old Gerber batted just .095/.170/.119 with a 21/4 K/BB ratio over 47 plate appearances during his first exposure to the majors this past season. He wasn't great in Triple-A either, but there's some pop in his bat and he has experience across the outfield.

Rangers claimed INF Carlos Asuaje off waivers from the Padres.

Asuaje was designated for assignment by the Padres last week after batting just .196/.286/.280 over 218 plate appearances in the majors this past season. However, he was pretty decent for the Padres in 2017 and plays solid defense, so he could find a home as a backup infielder here.
