The New York Yankees have signed infielder Ruben Tejada to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, reports Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.

Tejada batted just .167/.247/.242 in 36 games between the Cardinals and Giants in 2016, hampered somewhat by a strained quad he suffered in spring training. Before that he was with the Mets where, unfortunately, he was most famous for getting his leg broken by Chase Utley. He was pretty useful for the Mets in 2015, however, and can play multiple positions. He’ll be in the running for a backup/utility role for the Bombers in 2017.

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.
