Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians have acquired right-hander Charles Brewer from the Diamondbacks in exchange for cash. Scott Barnes was designated for assignment to open up a spot on Cleveland’s 40-man roster.

Brewer has logged only six career innings at the major league level — all in 2013 — and he owns a rough 5.29 ERA in 399 2/3 career innings at Triple-A. The 26-year-old right-hander is doubtful to make a positive impact for the Tribe. He’ll act as organizational rotation depth.

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.
