Blue Jays reach one-year deal with free-agent RHP David Phelps

Published

on

The Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a deal with free-agent right-hander David Phelps, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Thursday night.

The one-year deal is worth $2.5 million and includes a club option, sources said.

Phelps, 32, missed the 2018 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow while throwing the final pitch of his last spring appearance while with the Mariners, with whom he was expected to serve as a setup man in 2018.

Phelps spent his first three big league seasons with the Yankees before they traded him to the Marlins following the 2014 season. He pitched two-plus seasons for Miami before a trade to Seattle in 2017.

Phelps is a career 30-33 pitcher with a 3.89 ERA and 520 strikeouts in 553⅔ innings.

JC Ramirez, Nick Tropeano agree to deals with Los Angeles Angels

Published

on

LOS ANGELES — The Angels agreed to one-year contracts with right-handers JC Ramirez and Nick Tropeano that avoided salary arbitration.

Ramirez agreed at $1,901,000 on Thursday, a raise of $1,000. Tropeano’s deal is for $1,075,000, up from $552,500 in his first year of arbitration eligibility.

After breaking through as a big-league starter in 2017, Ramirez made two starts last season and had Tommy John surgery. He could be ready to return late this season.

Tropeano was 5-6 with a 4.74 ERA in 14 starts. The 28-year-old right-hander returned from Tommy John surgery but had shoulder problems. He has 12 big-league wins in four major league seasons that began with Houston in 2014.

Six Los Angeles players remain eligible to exchange proposed arbitration salaries Friday: right-handers Cam Bedrosian, Luis Garcia and Hansel Robles; left-handers Andrew Heaney and Tyler Skaggs; and second baseman Tommy La Stella.
