Minor League Transactions

Baseball America's Matt Eddy is back with minor league transactions for the period of December 21-31.  A few notable moves…

  • The White Sox signed 1B/OF Jason Botts, who compiled a .230/.325/.344 career line with the Rangers.
  • The Marlins signed reliever Chris Schroder, who posted a 2.22 ERA in 56.6 Triple A innings last year.
  • The Dodgers brought Jay Gibbons aboard.  Gibbons signed a minor league deal with the Marlins in January of '09 and was cut in March.
  • The Yankees added outfielder Reid Gorecki, who hit .286/.351/.464 in Triple A.  Also, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yanks signed lefty reliever Royce Ring and outfielder David Winfree
  • The Giants signed reliever Kevin Cameron, who had a respectable rookie season with the Padres back in '07.  He pitched only 32.3 innings in '09 for various A's affiliates.
  • The Blue Jays signed left fielder Chris Lubanski, who was originally drafted fifth overall by the Royals in 2003.

Wow, Cashman is really stock piling outfielders.

Best case scenario, Gibbons stays in Triple-A all year. Worst case scenario, he makes the team and blocks Xavier Paul. Again.

We really need a guy who can beat up left hand pitching on the bench.

Grab some pine, meat.

I think Kevin Cameron will take the place in our bullpen of either Joe Martinez or Madison Bumgarner, who ever gets called up to fill the 5th spot. I’m pulling for Bumgarner, but assuming that line drive to the skull last year didn’t cause damage to his windup, I expect Martinez to start.
