Minor Moves: James Skelton, Chris Seddon

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

  • The Nationals agreed to sign catcher James Skelton to a minor league deal, MLB.com's Bill Ladson tweets. The 26-year-old spent the 2011 season with Cincinnati's top affiliates, posting a .221/.360/.346 line in 174 plate appearances.
  • The Indians announced that they signed left-hander Chris Seddon to a minor league contract that inlcudes an invitation to Spring Training. The 28-year-old has MLB experience with the 2007 Marlins and the 2010 Mariners, but spent the 2011 season at the Triple-A level, where he posted a 6.27 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 149 1/3 innings of work. He'll enter Spring Training as a starter and at the moment it looks as though he'll provide depth at Triple-A, tweets MLB.com's Jordan Bastian.

    Mets also have waived Fernando Martinez. How quick they fall. This keeps happening to Mets OF’ers, I can’t reemember his name but he was such a good prospect that he almost got them Manny in his prime and then there was Milledge and now Martinez. Mets have serious injury issues. It’s just getting weird already.

    In Chris’ case, heading to Columbus is probably better than Cleveland. After all, the Clippers are back-to-back Triple-A champs. On the other hand, the Indians are back-to-back-to-back losers.

    joeybw…. I believe Alex Escobar was another one. ¬†Supposedly a five-tool player, can’t miss prospect.
