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.
