      Cubs' Jean Machi: Cut Friday

      Machi was reassigned to minor league camp Friday, Carrie Muskat of reports. Machi has had some success at the big-league level, but there were too many mouths to feed in the Cubs' bullpen. He'll likely spend the year on the Iowa-to-Chicago shuttle.

      Cubs' Jean Machi: Pitches scoreless inning

      Machi pitched a scoreless inning in a split-squad loss to Kansas City on Monday. Machi has had an up-and-down career as a reliever. He is probably not going to make the Cubs out of camp, but if he pitches well enough he could see himself in Chicago at times this year.

      Cubs' Jean Machi: Signs with Cubs

      Machi agreed to a minor league contract with the Cubs that includes an invitation to spring training Sunday, CBS Sports reports. Machi split time with the Giants and Red Sox last season, and briefly served as Boston's closer, but struggled for much of the year en route to posting a combined 5.12 ERA. His track record the previous two seasons should help give him an extended look in spring training, but it looks as though a major league roster spot is not guaranteed for the 33-year-old.

      Jean Machi: Elects free agency

      Machi elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Machi struggled in both San Francisco and Boston last season, posting an ERA above 5.00 in both stops. He briefly served as the Red Sox closer before losing the job, but the 33-year-old's strong 2013 and 2014 campaigns should help him find a bullpen role in the majors again next season.

      Red Sox RP Jean Machi overcomes shaky outing for fourth save

      Red Sox reliever Jean Machi picked up his fourth save of the season on Monday, but it wasn't without drama. Machi entered the ninth inning with the Red Sox up by two. He allowed the first two batters to reach base safely, one of which came around to score. But Machi was ultimately saved by a terrific catch in right field by Rusney Castillo to end the threat and close out the game, preserving the 4-3 win over the Yankees. Machi has been scored upon in five of his 14 appearances since joining the Red Sox at the July 31 trade deadline. He is a perfect 4-for-4 in save opportunities, however. Despite Monday's rough outing, manager Torey Lovullo is committed to Machi as his closer for the time being.

      Red Sox put RP Jean Machi on ML roster; Daniel Nava DFA'd

      The Red Sox have added right-handed reliever Jean Machi to the Major League roster. Machi was picked up off waivers from the Giants on Tuesday. Machi struggled with the Giants this season, posting a 5.14 ERA over 35 innings. But manager John Farrell explains the cause of Machi's struggles. "His fastball velocity has been consistently between 92 to 94 mph. His damage has come with his slider," Farrell said, per "It hasn't been as sharp as it was the last two years. That's the pitch that we have to hone in on and regain that consistency. "There is a little bit of a challenge bringing him in here with our situation with a need for innings right away with his inactivity. We'll see what he has." Machi had made just one appearance for the Giants since the All-Star break. To make room on the 40-man and 25-man rosters, Daniel Nava has been designated for assignment.
