The Brewers announced on Tuesday that pitcher Alec Asher was claimed off waivers from the Dodgers. He will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs. The club also announced that outfielder Christian Yelich was activated from the 10-day disabled list and pitcher Jorge Lopez was optioned to Triple-A.

Asher, 26, was pitching at Triple-A Oklahoma City for the Dodgers. He made one start in which he yielded two runs (one earned) on three hits with one strikeout in three innings. Across parts of three seasons in the majors with the Phillies and Orioles, Asher owns a career 5.55 ERA across 116 2/3 innings.

Yelich had been dealing with a strained right oblique. He is not in Tuesday’s starting lineup against the Reds.

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.
