The 28-year-old was dominant at AAA, but it didn’t show up in the big leagues.

The 26-year-old lefty was a control specialist at AAA last year.
An interesting righty added for bullpen depth, with potential upside.
Jake Arrieta comes in at the largest figure, nearly $17 million.

More roster moves coming your way.
