Minor Moves: Indians, Dodgers, Jake Fox

Here's where we'll keep track of today's minor moves…

  • The Indians announced that outfielder Jerad Head elected free agency. The 28-year-old spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he posted a .284/.338/.526 line with 24 homers.
  • Double-A right-hander Will Savage re-signed with the Dodgers on a minor league deal according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The 27-year-old posted a 3.95 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 1.7 BB/9 in 141 1/3 innings in 2011.
  • Jake Fox refused an assignment to the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate and has elected free agency, according to Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com (on Twitter). Baltimore had outrtighted Fox off of its 40-man roster last week. The 29-year-old posted a .756 OPS in 67 plate appearances this year, appearing behind the plate, in left field and at first base.

Sounds like he just may have proved that he is crazy like a fox

Jake Fox had 10 home runs this past spring and it reminds me of Major League 2.

Rube Baker: Wow, Willie’s really got some power.

Lou Brown: Off a guy who’ll be bagging groceries in a couple of weeks!

I wish Jake all the best.  I got to meet him this past season, and he couldn’t have been a nicer guy to talk to.  He’s never gotten a chance to play every day, and hopefully he’ll find a team to give him that chance. 

I do think his power is for real (unlike Omar Epps, a.k.a. Willie Mays Hayes).

Wesley Snipes was and always will be Willie Mays Hayes, forget Epps.

Astros could use this guy. Any guy, really.

Plus Phillies. I’d rather have him over Schneider.
