Let's keep track of the day's minor moves right here…
- The Yankees have released Buddy Carlyle, reports Donnie Collins of The Scranton Times-Tribune (on Twitter). The 33-year-old righty was with New York's Triple-A affiliate, but he did make it to the Bronx for 7 2/3 generally ineffective innings earlier this year. Carlyle had been designated for assignment and outrighted in June.
- The Yankees have also released Greg Smith, tweets Collins. Smith, a 27-year-old southpaw, pitched to a 4.84 ERA in 57 2/3 innings for the team's Triple-A squad. He's been involved in trades for Dan Haren and Matt Holliday in the past, and his release opened up a roster spot for the recently signed Scott Proctor.
- Matt Eddy of Baseball America has even more moves in this week's edition of minor league transactions.
