Keeping track of the latest minor moves from around baseball…
- Japan’s Yokohama BayStars have re-signed right-hander Spencer Patton to a two-year, $3MM guarantee with up to $1MM in incentives, Robert Murray of The Athletic tweets. A fifth-round pick of the Royals in 2011, Patton saw limited action with the Rangers (2014-15) and Cubs (2016) earlier in his professional career. Now 30 years old, Patton immigrated to Japan prior to the 2017 season and has since recorded sterling numbers – a 2.64 ERA with 10.3 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 – over 116 innings.
- The Giants have signed righty Kieran Lovegrove to a minor league deal, per Paul Hoynes of cleveland.com. San Francisco’s the second organization for the 24-year-old Lovegrove, who had been in Cleveland’s system since it selected him in the third round of the 2012 draft. The hard-throwing, South African-born Lovegrove spent most of last season at the Double-A level, where he pitched to a 3.46 ERA with 8.77 K/9 and 6.23 BB/9 in 39 frames. FanGraphs’ David Laurila profiled and interviewed Lovegrove earlier this month.
It’s immigrated. “Emigrated from,” “immigrated to.”
You have been officially named the boards English teacher….thank you so much for your contributions and teaching.
Actually, the other way around. A person immigrates from a country or emigrates to a country.
To clarify, a new location receives immigrants. A current location loses emigrees.
Let’s go with “moved to”
for us math geeks…..
good luck Spencer…you getting money out there than you would here because of your success.
Dumb arguments. You understand what he meant.

Emigrate means to leave one’s country to live in another. Immigrate is to come into another country to live permanently. Migrate is to move, like birds in the winter. The choice between emigrate,immigrate, and migrate depends on the sentence’s point of view.
About the stupidest comment section I have ever seen in my life, arguing about grammar. Information is offered, free of charge, about “latest minor moves from around baseball” and, instead of being appreciative, people want to jockey for position who is the smartest or the most correct. Keep up the good work Connor!
