The Cincinnati Reds have signed righty reliever David Hernandez to a two-year, $5 million contract.
Hernandez pitched with the Diamondbacks and Angels last season posting a 3.11 ERA and 52/9 K/BB ratio over 55 innings. Raisel Iglesias owns the closer’s role in Cincinnati, but Hernandez will get some high leverage spots. Or, at the very least, as high leverage as the Reds manage to find themselves in in 2018.
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.
