Colvin agreed to a minor-league contract Monday with the Dodgers, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Colvin has fallen on hard times since bashing 55 extra-base hits and hitting .290 over 136 games with the Rockies in 2012, with his major contact woes ultimately resulting in him dropping out of affiliated ball the last two years. After spending the 2016 campaign in the independent ranks, Colvin didn't play anywhere in 2017, but the 32-year-old isn't quite ready to call it a career just yet. Colvin will presumably head to the Dodgers' minor-league camp and look to prove that he's deserving of an assignment to either Triple-A Oklahoma City or Double-A Tulsa.
The White Sox released outfielder Jared Mitchell from Triple-A Charlotte and signed outfielder Tyler Colvin , according to a report by the Chicago Tribune. Mitchell was the White Sox's first-round draft pick in 2009 but never made it to the Majors. He was released after opening the season 2 for 40 (.050) at Charlotte. Colvin has played in 441 Major League games with three teams over the last six seasons.
Marlins outfielder Cole Gillespie accepted his assignment to Triple-A New Orleans, but outfielder Tyler Colvin has opted out, and is now a free agent, according to MLB.com on Friday. Gillespie hit .214 (6 for 28) with two RBI this spring. Colvin was held to just three hits over 21 at-bats this spring.
The Marlins announced several roster moves on Tuesday, per the Miami Herald. The team reassigned Tyler Colvin, Reid Brignac and Cole Gillespie down to minor-league camp. Miami also released Nick Masset. Miami has 30 players remaining in major-league camp.
Outfielder Tyler Colvin has elected to become a free agent. He hit .223/.268/.381 with two home runs and 18 RBI in 139 at-bats with the Giants in 2014.
