Rangers re-signed RHP Walker Weickel to a minor league contract.

The 25-year-old and former first round pick of the Padres has spent the past two seasons in the Rangers' organization. In 2018, he compiled a 4.75 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 102/38 K/BB ratio across 113 2/3 innings between High-A Down East and Double-A Frisco. He'll continue to function as minor league rotation depth for the Rangers.

Rockies' general manager Jeff Bridich announced Friday that hitting coach Duane Espy and first base coach Tony Diaz will not return to the team for the 2019 season.

Both coaches had been long-time members of the Rockies' organization. Diaz signed on to be the new third base coach for Rocco Baldelli and the Minnesota Twins. Espy had functioned as the team's hitting coach for the past two seasons.

Angels signed OF Peter Bourjos to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 31-year-old outfielder was a 10th round pick of the Angels in 2005 and spent the first four years of his big league career (2010 - 2013) with the Halos. He saw limited action with the Braves during the 2018 campaign, slashing just .205/.239/.364 with one homer and four RBI in 47 plate appearances. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder role on the club's Opening Day roster.

Kenley Jansen will undergo heart surgery on November 26.

The procedure was expected after Jansen dealt with an irregular heartbeat again this season. The best-case scenario for his recovery is two weeks, although it could take him as long as eight weeks. The closer is expected to be ready for the start of spring training either way.

Red Sox re-signed INF/OF Steve Pearce to a one-year, $6.25 million contract.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports first reported the deal and the Red Sox have officially announced it. After batting .279/.394/.507 with seven homers over 50 games down the stretch for the Red Sox, Pearce took home World Series MVP honors on the strength of three home runs and eight RBI during the Fall Classic. He'll turn 36 next April but should be useful again in a platoon role at first base with Mitch Moreland.

Marlins president of baseball operations Mike Hill said Friday that Caleb Smith (lat) could be a little behind at the start of spring training.

However, he does expect the left-hander to be ready in time for Opening Day. Smith was an early-season surprise for the Marlins before having surgery on his left lat in July. He'll have a good shot at an Opening Day rotation spot if he's healthy.

Marlins president of baseball operations Mike Hill said Friday that Pablo Lopez (shoulder) is at full strength.

Lopez missed the final month of the season with a right shoulder strain, but Hill says the young right-hander "looks great, says he feels great." He'll have a shot to break camp as a member of Miami's rotation.
