The Mariners have announced that they have traded catcher Jesus Sucre to the Tampa Bay Rays for a Player to be Named Later or Cash Considerations.

Seucre has been with the M’s for four seasons. Last year he only played in nine games after breaking his leg during winter league play before the seasons. For his career he’s a .209/.246/.276 hitter. His claims to fame thus far are (a) pitching a couple of times; and (b) catching Hisashi Iwakuma‘s no-hitter back in August 2015.

I wonder if players traded for cash find out later how much cash they were traded for.

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.
