Reds Sign RHP Vance Worley To A Minor-League Deal

Published

on

The Reds have signed RHP Vance Worley to a minor-league deal that includes an invite to Spring Training. Worley will reportedly make $1.5 million if he makes the major league club out of Spring Training. Worley’s contract reportedly also includes an opt-out clause if he is not added to the major league roster out of camp.

The 30-year-old started his career in Philadelphia, where he finished third in the Rookie of the Year voting in 2011. Worley only spent one more year in Philly after his rookie campaign, as he joined the Twins in 2013. After one season in Minnesota, he spent 2 years in Pittsburgh and 1 year in Baltimore before joining the Marlins in 2017.

Worley posted an ugly 6.91 ERA in 24 games last season and gave up 99 hits in 71.2 innings. Although he was simply not good in 2017, he has a career 4.09 ERA and can be both a reliever and a spot starter, which the Reds hope can provide them with a little pitching flexibility.

Orioles’ Adam Jones Clears Revocable Trade Waivers

Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones has cleared revocable trade waivers and is eligible to be traded to any team, according to Fancred’s Jon Heyman.

Due to his 10-and-5 rights, Jones, 33, can veto any trade that the O’s find. Jones already vetoed a trade to the Philadelphia Phillies ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline, wishing to remain with the Orioles until the end of the season rather than go to a new team.

The New York Yankees were approached by the Orioles regarding Jones, but his salary makes any potential move unlikely. The Cleveland Indians have also been linked to the veteran outfielder.

Orioles Designate Danny Valencia, Select Cedric Mullins

Published

on

The Baltimore Orioles have designated veteran infielder Danny Valencia for assignment, selecting the contract of outfielder Cedric Mullins, according to an official team announcement made on Friday.

Valencia, 33, has been a solid contributor for Baltimore this season, posting a .263/.316/.408 line, but with the O’s looking to a complete rebuild and youth movement, Baltimore likely thought it was time to move Valencia down to provide playing time for younger players.

With an easily digestible $1.2M salary this season, it is likely that teams will kick the tires on Valencia for a stretch run.

Mullins has posted a .267/.332/.425 slash line in Triple-A this season.
