The Brewers have gotten the jump on their long holiday weekend by finishing up some paperwork: they have finalized their deals with pitchers Jhoulys Chacin and Yovani Gallardo.
As reported, Chacin is now signed to a two-year, $15.5 million contract. Gallardo gets one year and $2 million in base with $2 million in incentives.
Chacin spent last year with the San Diego Padres, putting up a 3.89 ERA in 32 starts while striking out 153 in 180 innings. Gallardo put up a a 5-10 record in 28 games — 22 as a starter — posting a 5.72 ERA, in 130.w innings with the Mariners. He, of course, spent the first eight years of his career with the Brewers.
Mmmmm . . . I love the sound of innings being eaten.
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.
