Good morning baseball fans!
New York officially signed Jose Reyes to a minor league contract when he became a free agent Saturday afternoon:
Reyes, 33, was designated for assignment and subsequently released by the Rockies after missing the entire season to this point after violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. The Royals and White Sox had preliminary interest as well, though the potential public backlash to signing the veteran scared off some teams.
The Mets optioned Michael Conforto to Triple-A and promoted Brandon Nimmo in the corresponding roster move.
Chicago is still interested in Andrew Miller, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman, according to George A. King III of The New York Post.
Trevor Rosenthal will no longer be closing games for the Cardinals.
Baltimore reached an agreement with its second round pick:
Houston is considering promoting one of its Double-A prospects to Triple-A:
