The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

The Nats win the close ones. They win the not-so-close ones. They win the tame ones. And last night, they won a wild one.

Released earlier this week by the Astros, right-hander Jerome Williams has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rangers.

Tony Sipp was a centerfielder at Clemson, but once he became a pitcher he thought the days of patrolling the outfield were behind him.

This is just adorable.

That the Astros are in rebuild mode is no secret. In the past, they had been pawning off veteran players in an effort to usher in a youth movement, but GM Jeff Luhnow says the Astros aren’t likely to be sellers at this year’s trade deadline. Jesse Crain and Jerome Williams are eligible to become free…

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that first baseman Brett Wallace has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City. He will be in Astros camp this spring as a non-roster invitee, hoping to earn back his 40-man roster spot. Wallace was designated for assignment by the Houston front office last week to…

To make room for free agent signing Jerome Williams on the 40-man roster the Astros have designated first baseman Brett Wallace for assignment. Wallace was once a top prospect, but it turned out he couldn’t really play third base defensively and never developed into the impact bat many people pegged him for in the minors.…

Having finished with baseball’s worst record three straight years, the Astros have mastered the art of being bad. And it’s worked out for them; thanks to their early draft picks and some veteran-for-prospects trades, they now boast one of the game’s very best farm systems. That left the Astros with a decision to make entering…

Game. Changer. Source: #Astros agree to deal with Jerome Williams, pending physical. — Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) February 3, 2014 Or not. I dunno. This is the slowest day of the offseason yet, so I’m reaching for anything. Williams was non-tendered by the Angels in December after posting a 4.57 ERA and 107/55 K/BB ratio…

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Rangers are “making progress” on a deal with free agent right-hander Jerome Williams. Talks have “intensified” since left-hander Derek Holland suffered a left knee injury which will likely keep him sidelined until midseason. Williams was non-tendered by the Angels in December after posting a 4.57 ERA…

Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

Jerome Williams (or more accurately, mostly his agent) spent the past week talking about how he hoped to be non-tendered by the Angels because he believed other teams would be willing to give him a full-time rotation spot. And he got his wish last night, as they cut him loose rather than keeping the 32-year-old…

We’ll be writing up the non-tenders as they come in prior to Monday’s midnight deadline. These players immediately become free agents. AMERICAN LEAGUE Angels – RHP Juan Gutierrez, RHP Tommy Hanson, INF Chris Nelson, RHP Jerome Williams All of these were expected. Hanson and Williams would have cost upwards of $4 million apiece.
