Royals reassigned RHP Jon Rauch to minor league camp.

Rauch signed a minor league contract with the Royals in late January and then went on to surrender seven runs -- six earned -- in six Cactus League innings. He will try to prove himself worthy of a call-up at Triple-A.

The Royals signed Jon Rauch to a minor league contract, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

Rauch suffered through a miserable 2013 season, first getting released by the lowly Marlins after posting a 7.56 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over 16 2/3 innings, and then getting axed by Baltimore, which steadfastly refused to give him a big-league opportunity. This isn't a bad no-risk gamble for the Royals, seeing as though Rauch collected a 3.59 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in 57 2/3 innings as recently as 2012 with the Mets.

Orioles released RHP Jon Rauch.

Rauch was granted his release after using the opt-out clause in his minor league contract. The veteran reliever had a 2.89 ERA and 10/4 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings during his time with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate. He'll look for a new opportunity elsewhere.

Marlins released RHP Jon Rauch.

Rauch was designated for assignment by the Fish earlier this week after posting a 7.56 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over his first 16 2/3 innings. The 34-year-old right-hander will presumably look to latch on with a new organization.

Marlins designated RHP Jon Rauch for assignment.

The veteran right-hander's short tenure with the Marlins comes to a close after just 16 2/3 innings. During that time, he compiled a 7.56 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 15/7 K/BB ratio. Despite the poor start, Rauch should have no problem attracting interest from other teams starved for bullpen depth.

Jon Rauch pitched three innings out of the pen for the win as the Marlins edged the Mets 4-3 in 15 innings on Monday.

Rauch gave up a run in the top of the 15th, but the Marlins came back and won it in the bottom of the inning on a Nick Green sac fly. Rauch threw 60 pitches tonight, making it his longest ever outing out of the pen. His previous high was 55 pitches for the Expos on Sept. 18, 2004.

Marlins signed RHP Jon Rauch to a one-year contract.

No word yet on the financial terms of the deal. Rauch posted a solid 3.59 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 42/12 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings last season for the Mets. The 34-year-old will operate in a setup role this year in Miami.

Jon Rauch insisted on Sunday that his elbow is fine.

Rauch hung a slider that turned into the game-winning homer by Russell Martin in Sunday's loss. Rauch dealt with a minor case of inflammation last week, but he believes he's past it. The big righty also disputed the team's claim that there is debris in his elbow. After taking an anti-inflammatory medication, he said he's fine. Earlier this season, it seemed likely that he would steal the closer's job from Frank Francisco. Rauch is nowhere near that position in the hierarchy anymore.
