Marinez signed a minor league deal with the Rays on Thursday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports. He posted a 1.92 ERA with 65 strikeouts in 61 innings last year with Triple-A Durham, and could get a shot in the Rays bullpen at some point in 2016.
The Rays reassigned pitchers Everett Teaford and Brandon Gomes to minor-league camp along with six other players, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Teaford and Gomes were in the mix for spots on the 25-man roster before being reassigned. The team also cut catcher Mayo Acosta, outfielders Corey Brown and Joey Butler and pitchers Jhan Marinez, Jim Miller and Jordan Norberto.
The Rays signed catcher Mayo Acosta, outfielder Joey Butler, infielder Juan Francisco, right-hander Jhan Marinez and left-hander Everett Teaford all to minor-league deals, according to the team's official Triple-A website.
The Tigers have signed pitcher Jhan Marinez to a minor-league deal. Marinez went 2-4 with a 6.11 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 26:16 K:BB ratio in 28 innings with Triple-A Charlotte last season.
The White Sox cleared roster space by outrighting reliever Jhan Marinez to Triple-A Charlotte Saturday. The 25-year-old struggled at Charlotte this season with a 6.11 ERA over 28 innings of work. He is mostly organizational depth.
