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.

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.

Twins signed RHP Preston Guilmet to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Guilmet was rocked for 13 runs over 10 innings during his brief time in the majors this season, though he was excellent at Triple-A. He'll be a long shot to win a bullpen spot.

Twins signed RHP Zack Weiss to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Weiss made his major league debut with the Reds this season but failed to retire a batter in his one appearance. The 26-year-old also struggled in the minors in 2018, although he posted excellent numbers previously.

Mariners purchased the contract of OF Braden Bishop from Double-A Arkansas.

Bishop, 25, batted .284/.361/.412 with eight homers and five steals over 84 games for Arkansas this season. He is now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.

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.
