The Rays announced on Sunday that pitching prospect Blake Snell will be called up to start on Thursday against the Mariners. Matt Andriese will be moved to the bullpen as a result.

Snell made his major league debut earlier this season against the Yankees, throwing five innings of one-run ball. The 23-year-old has spent the vast majority of the season at Triple-A Durham, where he’s posted a 3.29 ERA with a 90/28 K/BB ratio over 63 innings.

Snell is considered the Rays’ best prospect and the 12th-best overall prospect by MLB Pipeline.

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.
