    From Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports comes word that veteran reliever Jose Mijares officially opted out of his minor league contract with the Red Sox on Sunday morning to pursue a better opportunity. Mijares was buried too far down the Boston bullpen depth chart to have a legitimate shot at an Opening Day roster spot…

    The Red Sox have signed lefty reliever Jose Mijares to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Mijares, 29, has had mixed results over the last four seasons, but has shown that he has the potential to be effective out of the bullpen. Last season, with…

    From beat writer Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle comes word that the Giants outrighted Jose Mijares off their 40-man roster on Tuesday evening and that the veteran left-handed reliever then elected to become a free agent. Mijares was a non-tender candidate this winter in San Francisco after posting a brutal 4.22 ERA and…

  4. Bruce Bochy screwed up a double switch in last night’s game

    Jun 18, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    Bruce Bochy

    Bruce Bochy is in his 19th season as a National League manager. He’s forgotten more about double switches than you and I will ever know. If a national emergency happened and the President and the Joint Chiefs of Staff needed an expert in double switching to stave off the apocalypse, Bochy would probably be, like,…

  5. Santiago Casilla ahead of schedule, could return in 2-3 weeks

    Jun 14, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    World Series - San Francisco Giants v Detroit Tigers - Game 4

    Giants reliever Santiago Casilla is doing well recovering from recent surgery on his right knee which removed a cyst. In fact, according to CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly, the right-hander is doing so well that manager Bruce Bochy estimates a return in two to three weeks. Casilla wasn’t expected to return until after the All-Star…

  6. Andres Torres, Jose Mijares pull out of WBC with injuries

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Andres Torres

    Andres Torres won’t play for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic because of an oblique strain and is expected to be sidelined for 7-10 days in Giants camp, according to Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com. Giants teammate Jose Mijares will also likely withdraw from Team Venezuela due to elbow soreness, although that hasn’t been made…

  7. Giants, Jose Mijares avoid arbitration with one-year deal

    Jan 18, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Jose Mijares

    Jose Mijares and the Giants have agreed to a one-year, $1.8 million deal, avoiding arbitration. Last offseason the Twins oddly decided to release Mijares rather than paying him around $800,000 via arbitration and he signed with the Royals for $925,000. He went on to have a good year in Kansas City and then San Francisco,…

  8. Hugo Chavez is digging this World Series

    Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez talks on the phone with Edgar Renteria in Caracas

    Pablo Sandoval homered three times on Wednesday. Anibal Sanchez gets the start tonight. Miguel Cabrera, Avisail Garcia, Omar Infante, Marco Scutaro, Gregor Blanco, Jose Mijares and Hector Sanchez are on rosters.  Venezuela is well represented in this World Series. And someone is very happy about that: Hugo Chavez: He referred to President Barack Obama as he…

  9. Cardinals pouring it on against Giants, lead 8-1 through seven innings in Game 4

    UPDATE: The Cardinals added two more runs in the bottom of the seventh and now lead it 8-1.

  10. Tim Lincecum provides steady relief as Giants win 8-3 and force NLDS to Game 5

    The Giants looked to be in big trouble when starter Barry Zito allowed three walks and a single in the first inning of Wednesday’s NLDS Game 4 vs. the Reds and a home run to Ryan Ludwick in the third. But the fellas in the gray “San Francisco” jerseys were the ones sharing handshakes on…

  11. Maybe he has really terrible b.o.

    Aug 6, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Jose Mijares

    That’s one of my working theories for the odd case of Jose Mijares. Now, Mijares was pretty bad last year, finishing with a 4.59 ERA and a 30/30 K/BB ratio in 49 innings for the Twins. Still, between 2009-10, he had a 2.67 ERA and an 83/32 K/BB ratio in 94 innings. The Twins probably…

  12. Giants acquire Jose Mijares from Royals via waivers

    Aug 6, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    San Francisco has added some bullpen help for the stretch run by claiming left-hander Jose Mijares off waivers from Kansas City. Mijares signed a one-year deal with the Royals after being non-tendered by the Twins this offseason and has pitched well with a 2.56 ERA and 37/13 K/BB ratio in 39 innings. By not pulling…

  13. Royals want a player, not a prospect, for Jonathan Broxton

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jonathan Broxton

    That according to FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi: Broxton, who was signed to set up Joakim Soria this season, has a 1.99 ERA and 21 saves in 24 opportunities as Kansas City’s closer. Still, the Royals would likely be OK without him, as they’d still have some combination of Greg Holland, Aaron Crow and Tim Collins to…

  14. What exactly goes on at a SABR convention anyway?

    sabr42logo

    I’ve been on vacation for a week while attending the annual Society for American Baseball Research convention for the ninth consecutive summer. If you’ve ever wondered what exactly goes on at a SABR convention–and be honest, you probably have several semi-insulting questions–I wrote up a star-studded (Terry Ryan! Jose Mijares! Salvador Perez! Sean Forman!), picture-filled,…

  15. Jose Mijares arrives at Royals camp after passport delay

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    venezuela passport

    Jose Mijares is finally in Royals camp following a week-long delay due to passport issues in Venezuela. “I waited for my passport and the embassy didn’t send it to me for 10 days,” Mijares told Dick Kaegel of MLB.com, who notes that the left-handed reliever won’t be too far behind other pitchers because he threw…

  16. Royals sign Twins castoff Jose Mijares for $925,000

    Dec 21, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Mijares_Jose

    Non-tendered by the Twins last week, Jose Mijares has quickly found a new home in the AL Central. Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the 27-year-old reliever has agreed to a one-year deal with the Royals, who plan to use him as a left-handed specialist. Mijares had a terrible 2011 season, walking…

  17. Tracking the non-tenders: Joe Saunders, Luke Scott, Hong-Chih Kuo

    Dec 13, 2011, 12:54 AM EDT

    Luke Scott

    Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery. The Orioles could re-sign him for significantly less…
