Minor Deals: Rangers, Padres, Marlins

The Braves made a pair of minor deals yesterday; here are today's minor moves…

  • The Rangers released several minor leaguers including former major leaguer Ty Taubenheim, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
  • The Padres released right fielder Kellen Kulbacki, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (on Twitter). The 40th overall selection in 2007, Kulbacki has a .273/.357/.448 line in four pro seasons.
  • The Marlins released right-handed reliever Brett Sinkbeil, according to Eddy (on Twitter). Sinkbeil, the 19th overall selection in 2006, spent 2010 on the Marlins' 40-man roster and boosted his strikeout rate to 8.0 K/9 as a reliever at Triple-A.

Thing sure do change in a hurry. It wasn’t long ago the Padres had Kulbacki on the fast track and were expecting big things from him. Too bad he couldn’t stay healthy, because from everything I read the kid had some offensive skills.
