Veteran outfielder Chris Heisey has signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays after being released by the Dodgers last week.

Heisey has spent most of this season at Triple-A, but was a semi-regular for the Reds from 2010-2014 and hit .247 with 50 homers, 25 steals, and a .721 OPS in 543 games while seeing time in all three outfield spots.

Toronto has been very busy beefing up the roster, including big trades for Troy Tulowitzki and David Price, and now the Blue Jays are simply making sure they’re well-stocked with useful 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.
