The Marlins sign Joe Beimel

MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins have signed lefty reliever Joe Beimel.

Beimel is 39 and hasn’t been with anyone this year. He had a tryout for the Cubs last week but that went nowhere. Now he’ll report to extended spring training for Miami before heading, presumably, to New Orleans to wait for a chance.

Beimel posted a 3.99 ERA across 47 and a third innings last season for Seattle. He missed the entire 2012 season and only pitched in the miners in 2013 before landing with the Mariners in 2014. But he throws with his left arm so age, shoulder problems, time off, eh, doesn’t matter. Guys like him are The Winter Soldier.

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.
