Minor Moves: Sisco, Mujica, Russell, Armstrong

Some Minor League moves of note as some teams try to trim rosters and others look to amass organizational depth.

  • The Yankees released left-handed pitcher Andy Sisco, tweets Matt Eddy of Baseball America. Sisco has bounced around in recent years and last appeared in the big leagues with the White Sox in 2007.
  • The Yankees and Braves each inked a veteran international free agent, with New York signing Cuban shortstop Yadil Mujica and Atlanta signing Australian outfielder-turned-pitcher Andrew Russell, a righty, tweets Eddy.
  • The Angels signed catcher Cole Armstrong, who could claim a spot on the Halos' 40-man roster as a defense-first specialist, tweets Eddy.

    And why do the Angels need another defense first catcher?

    Are the Yankees really in a position to be releasing pitchers?

      did you miss the part about Sisco not having pitched in the majors since 2007?

      This isn’t pokemon they don’t have to get EVERY pitcher to compete for a few spots, besides Sisco is not healthy.

      Clearly, you’ve never seen him pitch. He may be 9 feet tall, but he’s awful.
