Tim Collins and Justin Nicolino. Minor League contracts with ST invites.Both have have MLB experience, Collins with KC and DC and Nicolino with FL. Collins is a reliever and Nicolino has been mainly starting.

I know I have to sit thru the dumpster diving talk, but can't help noticing a lot of teams are doing the same thing. They must be concerned about their lefties. We picked up 3 at the 2017 trade deadline, but only one in 2018. Another reason why, I'm not at all unhappy about Perez. Out of the pen, he has touched 97.

25% of the time you can beat anybody. 25% of the time you can't beat nobody. It's the other 50% of the time that defines you as a pitcher.

Every team makes a dozen minor league signings or so like this. They're just adding depth guys whose chances will be low at making the team, and some guys will stay at AAA to prepare for a chance at a callup at some point. Nicolino or Collins could be one of those vets who get called up midseason because a reliever is hurt and they've been pitching well at AAA.
