Minor League Transactions: Henn, Dodgers, Mendoza

All of the minor league moves that took place between October 15-25 have been helpfully catalogued by Baseball America's Matt Eddy. Here are a few of the notable names involved…

  • Left-hander Sean Henn re-signed with Toronto, a week after the Blue Jays granted him free agency.  Henn spent his 2010 season pitching for the Jays' Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas, posting a 4.73 ERA in 38 games (nine of them starts).
  • The Dodgers re-signed a number of players with major league experience, such as J.D. Closser, Tim Corcoran and Travis Denker.  Los Angeles also re-signed 11-year veteran Corey Smith, who has yet to get a cup of coffee in the bigs after being drafted 26th overall by Cleveland in the 2000 amateur draft.
  • Luis Mendoza re-signed with Kansas City.  The right-hander has an 8.43 ERA in 36 career major league appearances, 14 of which were starts, with the Rangers and Royals.
  • Houston re-signed Brian Esposito and Wladimir Sutil, both of whom were recently removed from the club's 40-man roster.  In addition, the Astros re-signed Oswaldo Navarro, who picked up 25 plate appearances for Houston last season.

I’ve always rooted for Travis Denker. He isn’t that great, but then again he isn’t that bad. Hopefully someday he will get a little more than a cup of coffee in the majors.

Please Luis Mendoza let our bullpen be.

I remember Luis Mendoza started against the White Sox couple years back, he shut them down, and then… nothing. The problem is the same kind of thing has happened to the Sox umpteen times. It makes no sense, why should a no-name pitcher always shut down the Sox?
