Michael Brantley‘s uncertain health status increases the Indians’ need for outfield depth and Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that they “are talking about a one-year deal” with free agent Rajai Davis.
Davis has been a semi-regular for most of the past decade, receiving at least 300 plate appearances every year since 2009 but getting more than 500 plate appearances just once during that time.
He hit .258 with eight homers and a .746 OPS in 112 games for the Tigers in 2015, adding more power than usual to help make up for a decline in speed at age 34.
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.
