The Cardinals sign Suppan, will start him tonight

Jeff Suppan threw a bullpen session for Cardinals’ pitching coach
Dave Duncan on Saturday. Duncan liked what he saw well enough that the team did what we expected it to do yesterday and signed Suppan.  They plan to start him tonight against the Mariners.

The Mariners have an anemic offense, the home crowd will obviously have some warm fuzzies over Suppan’s 2006 NLCS performance and Suppan has always done well on ten days rest, so this seems like the best possible way to break him into the rotation.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
