Signed:
RHP Dalier Hinojosa
Acquired: 3B Jimmy Rider from Pirates for future considerations

The 27-year-old Dalier Hinojosa defected from Cuba in February and was declared free to sign with any team by Major League Baseball in July. The Red Sox had been linked to Hinojosa since at least June.

Chicago Cubs
Elected free agency:
C J.C. Boscan, OF Darnell McDonald

Miami Marlins
Signed:
RHP Brett Wallach (released by Cubs, March 29), LHP Juan Silvestre
Elected free agency: 3B Gil Velazquez
Removed from 40-man: OF Alfredo Silverio (outrighted to Triple-A)

Rule 5 pick Alfredo Silverio had a second career Tommy John surgery in July and now has missed the entire 2012 and ’13 seasons with serious injuries. That explains how the 26-year-old cleared waivers following his outright assignment, and why the Dodgers, with their outfield depth, did not spend the $25,000 necessary to buy back his rights. Silverio now faces no restrictions as a member of the Marlins organization, assuming he signs a minor league deal with them for 2014 rather than become a minor league free agent in November.
