Non-tendered by the Braves in November, reliever Peter Moylan has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
When healthy Moylan has been one of the best setup men in the league, posting a 2.59 ERA in 261 career innings, but he’s missed most of the past two seasons following shoulder surgery.
At age 34 the side-arming right-hander will try to win a middle relief job in what is now a pretty crowded Dodgers bullpen.
MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.
Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.
The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
