The Rangers have discussed bringing back outfielder Drew Stubbs, but it would likely have to be on a minor league contract, per ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.
Stubbs, 31, opened the 2015 season with the Rockies, but was released in August and signed with the Rangers a few days after. Between the two clubs, the veteran hit a combined .195/.283/.382 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 140 plate appearances. Only 26 of those came with the Rangers as he served mostly in a pinch-hitting role.
Stubbs hasn’t hit much outside of Coors Field but he can play all three outfield positions while providing average or better defense, so he still can provide some value in a depth role.
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.
