Minor Moves: Espino, Rockies, Reyes, Lebron

The latest minor moves…

  • The White Sox have agreed to sign catcher Damaso Espino to a minor league deal that includes an invitation to MLB Spring Training, MLBTR has learned. The 28-year-old posted a .292/.347/.381 line in 224 plate appearances for the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in 2011.
  • The Rockies announced that they signed infielder Brendan Harris and catcher Jose Gonzalez to minor league deals (Twitter link). Harris, 31, spent the 2011 season with the Orioles' top affiliate, where he posted a .225/.282/.331 line with ten home runs in 565 plate appearances. The seven-year veteran has MLB experience at all four infield positions.
  • The Indians announced that they signed infielder Argenis Reyes and right-hander Willy Lebron to minor league deals that don't include invitations to big league Spring Training. The club also confirmed the signing of infielder Chin-lung Hu to a minor league deal. Reyes started the 2011 season in indy ball then signed a minor league deal with the Indians in August. The 29-year-old has MLB experience with the Mets. Lebron, 32, posted a 3.02 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 65 2/3 innings in the upper levels of the Royals' system last year.

    So Cleveland just can’t live without a Lebron.

    The Miami fans are just jealous because our Lebron can close.

    They both traveled.

  6. This is not the Lebron droid you’re looking for.  Nor is this a test post of the coming NBA Trade Rumors site.

    Chin-lung Hu was pathetic with the Mets.  PATHETIC.

      Argenis Reyes is yet another Met reject.  In fact, I’m pretty sure I saw him look over-matched when playing for the unaffiliated Jersey Jackels in 2010.

    so….does this mean that the Rockies cleared out Emaus to make room for Brendan Harris?  It probably doesn’t make much of a difference either way, but I don’t get it.
