Minor Moves: Thomas, Olmedo, Darnell, Solis

Here are today's minor transactions, with the latest moves at the top of the post…

  • The Angels signed left-hander Justin Thomas to a minor league deal, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez tweets.  Thomas posted a 6.93 ERA over 24 2/3 IP with the Mariners, Pirates, Red Sox and Yankees from 2008-12.  The 29-year-old southpaw spent the first half of 2013 pitching for the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate before signing with the Nippon Ham Fighters.
  • The Rays signed infielder Ray Olmedo, third baseman/outfielder James Darnell, catcher Ali Solis and right-hander Santiago Garrido to minor league contracts, the team announced via its Twitter feed.  All four players will receive invitation to the Rays' Major League Spring Training camp.
  • Since Rafael Ortega was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals earlier today, only two players remain in DFA Limbo according to the MLBTR DFA Tracker: Padres right-hander Adys Portillo and White Sox lefty Santos Rodriguez.

Man, Ray Olmedo has been around forever. I still remember him in games like MVP baseball 2005 and MLB 2K6.
