The Blue Jays have signed pitcher Brett Anderson to a minor league contract, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports. The deal is pending a physical.

Anderson, 29, made six starts for the Cubs earlier this season before landing on the disabled list with a lower back injury. The Cubs activated him from the DL and designated him for assignment on July 26. The lefty owns an 8.18 ERA with a 16/12 K/BB ratio in 22 innings on the season.

Though Anderson is anything but a sure bet, the Blue Jays can use any rotation help they can get. The last-place club has used 12 different starters this year, mostly to disastrous effect. Mike Bolsinger, Cesar Valdez, Mat Latos, Casey Lawrence, and Nick Tepesch have made 15 starts combined out of the back of the rotation with an aggregate 7.31 ERA.

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.
