  • Rondon opted to retire from professional baseball Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The 33-year-old spent spring training with the Phillies before being released and subsequently signing a minors deal with the Red Sox, but he's now decided to hang up his cleats. Rondon appeared in 444 games between the Cubs, Astros and Diamondbacks over his eight-year big-league career, and he finished with a 3.49 ERA and 1.20 WHIP while recording 92 saves over 436 innings.

  • Rondon signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The 33-year-old with in camp with the Phillies as a non-roster invitee, but he was released by the club last week. Rondon had a 7.65 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 23:11 K:BB over 20 innings with the Diamondbacks last season, and he should head to Triple-A or the alternate training site for the Red Sox.

  • Rondon was released by the Phillies on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Rondon was brought in as a non-roster invitee prior to camp with an eye on bolstering a bullpen that was historically poor last season, but the Phillies evidently saw enough from their numerous other additions that they didn't plan on giving him a roster spot. His 7.71 ERA in seven spring innings likely didn't help his case, though his 8:2 K:BB was solid.

  • Rondon signed a minor-league contract which includes an invitation to big-league camp with the Phillies on Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Phillies will be hoping they get the pitcher Rondon was with the Astros in 2018 and 2019, when he recorded a combined 3.46 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. He wasn't anything close to that guy with the Diamondbacks last year, struggling to a 7.65 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over 20 frames as his walk rate rose to 11.3 percent and his groundball rate fell to 35.5 percent. Heading into his age-33 season, a bounceback is far from guaranteed, but the risk of a minor-league deal is obviously quite low for the Phillies.

  • Rondon's contract option was declined by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Rondon struggled in his first season with the Diamondbacks, as he posted a 7.65 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over 20 innings across 23 relief appearances during the abbreviated 2020 campaign. The right-hander has worked as a late-inning reliever throughout his career, but he may have to settle for a lower-leverage role entering his age-33 season.
