Cole Hamels has signed with San Diego on a minor-league deal, according to Robert Murray. Dennis Lin says Manny Machado is going to opt out after this season. Nick Madrigal continues to work out at third base. Corbin Burnes has a sad. Willson Contreras is determined to be the player you hate on another team. Matt Moore is an Angel now.
