Corporan signed a minor league contract with the Marlins on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan was released by the Rays on Friday, but it didn't take long for another club to seek out his services behind the plate. The 32-year-old was a bit lackluster at the plate with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate, batting just .200 with two home runs and nine RBI in 65 at-bats, so he'll likely just act as organizational depth going forward if he can't improve his dreary numbers at the plate.

Corporan was released by the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Rays added fellow catcher J.P Arencibia on a minor league deal Friday, so it's clear the organization was ready to move on from Corporan, who was hitting .200 at Triple-A Durham prior to his release. He is now a free agent.

Corporan was traded to the Rays on Saturday for cash considerations, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan joined the Yankees on a minor league deal that included a spring training invite earlier in the offseason. With just one day left before Opening Day, the Yankees flipped him to the Rays, showing that they're confident in their catching duo of Brian McCann and Austin Romine. As for Corporan, it's unclear where he fits in at the major league level in Tampa Bay behind Hank Conger and Curt Casali. He could be sent down to the minor leagues to provide organizational depth at catcher.

Corporan signed a minor league contract with the Yankees on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan spent 2015 as the Rangers' backup catcher, but had his season ended in mid-July with a thumb injury after hitting a mere .178 with three home runs and 15 RBI. He'll likely just add some depth at catcher in the organization with Brian McCann slated as the starter for now and prospect Gary Sanchez possibly coming to the majors soon.

Corporan (thumb) refused his outright assignment Tuesday and instead opted for free agency, the Rangers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan was outrighted last Wednesday, but rather than stick with the Rangers, he'll test the open market. In 33 games with the big club this season, the catcher fell below the Mendoza Line, recording a .178/.244/.299 line with three homers in 107 at-bats.

Corporan was outrighted from the 40-man roster Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan underwent surgery last week on his injured left thumb, however he is expected to be healthy for the start of spring training. The 31-year-old registered 107 at-bats with the Rangers this season, but he was incredibly inefficient at the plate, recording a .178/.244/.299 slash line to go along with three home runs (second lowest total when recording 100+ at-bats in his career). It remains to be seen whether he will accept his assignment to Triple-A Round Rock or try to sign with another club during the offseason.

Corporan underwent left thumb surgery Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan missed about six weeks during the season with a left thumb sprain, but was able to return in September. The ailment was apparently still persisting at the end of the season, but the 31-year-old should be back in time for the start of spring training.

Corporan (thumb) was activated from the DL on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

This was fully anticipated, but the Rangers now have three active catchers, all of whom are fairly uninspiring from a fantasy perspective. Look for Corporan to catch a couple days per week over the rest of the season.

Corporan (thumb) will be activated from the DL on Tuesday, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan will return from the DL as rosters expand Tuesday, and he'll be joined by Joey Gallo, Drew Stubbs, Luke Jackson, Ross Ohlendorf and Josh Hamilton, per the report. Corporan has not played since July 13 due to a bruised left thumb, and he figures to step in as the Rangers' third catcher behind Chris Gimenez and Bobby Wilson over the final month of the season.

Corporan (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Frisco on Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corporan resumed baseball activities nearly two weeks ago, and he'll now move on to the final stage in his recovery from a sprained left thumb. It's unclear how many rehab appearances he'll make, but considering he's missed more than a month and already suffered one setback, the team will likely ensure that he's 100 percent before activating him. Once activated, Corporan will mostly provide depth behind the plate and doesn't figure to be much of a fantasy factor over the final month of the season.
