Blue Jays signed RHP Miguel Batista to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Rockies released RHP Miguel Batista.
Batista was predictably awful this spring, posting a 9.00 ERA and 2.71 WHIP over six appearances. The 42-year-old might be able to catch on with a minor league deal somewhere, but he's not going to make any sort of impact in 2013.

ESPN's Enrique Rojas reports that the Rockies have agreed to a minor league contract with Miguel Batista.
Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The 41-year-old right-hander will receive an invitation to major league spring training as part of the deal. With as abysmal as the Rockies pitching staff was in 2012, he stands a decent chance of making the team either as a starter or reliever.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that Miguel Batista has decided to pitch in 2013, and will make a decision soon on which of four interested teams to pitch for.
The 18-year veteran is coming off a disappointing 2012 season in which he posted a 4.61 ERA and 1.73 WHIP over 52 2/3 innings between the Mets and Braves. His veteran leadership could play well in a swingman role for teams searching for bullpen depth, but he won't be a factor in fantasy leagues.

Braves signed RHP Miguel Batista to a minor league contract.
Batista was released by the Mets this week after posting an ugly 4.82 ERA and 34/31 K/BB ratio over 46 2/3 innings. He's not worthy of a major league roster spot at this point of his career, so he'll serve as organization depth with Triple-A Gwinnett.

David Lennon of Newsday reports that Miguel Batista has signed with the Braves.
It's almost surely a minor league deal. Batista was released by the Mets after posting a 1.80 WHIP in 30 appearances with the Mets. He's unlikely to make any worthwhile appearances for Atlanta in the second half.
