Minor Moves: Davis, Astros, Roemer

Here are the latest minor moves…

  • The White Sox released Doug Davis, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America. They had signed the veteran left-hander to a minor league deal in July.
  • Eddy has all of the other minor league transactions that took place between August 31st and September 6th. 
  • The Astros announced that they signed right-hander Alan Abreu as a non-drafted free agent out of Lander University. Abreu played primarily shortstop and center field in college, according to the Astros.
  • The D'Backs released right-hander Wes Roemer over the weekend, according to the Pacific Coast League transactions page. Arizona released the former supplementary first round pick to clear 40-man roster space, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (on Twitter). Roemer posted a 4.39 ERA with 6.3 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 in 164 innings in the upper minors this year. He has a 4.44 ERA with 6.7 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in five pro seasons.

I suppose when you have the top line starters Arizona has acquired recently in the system, the lower tier guys start to lose their value.

He wasn’t on the 40 man roster

The crazy thing is that Roemer was released from AAA Reno, while they kept Gaby Hernandez, Kevin Mulvey, Tom Layne, and Zach Kroenke in their rotation. I think Roemer has had better results and is a much better prospect that all four of those guys. No wonder Reno lost in the AAA playoffs.

I doubt any of them will be back next year regardless. Not really sure why Roemer was released though, because it seems like he’d at least have some potential as a reliever.
