Minor Moves: White Sox, Royals, Golson, Cora

We’ll keep track of today’s minor moves right here:

  • The Royals announced via Twitter that they have traded outfielder Greg Golson to the White Sox for cash considerations.  The 26-year-old appeared in nine games for the Yankees last year and hit .263/.330/.385 in 105 games with the team’s Triple-A affiliate.
  • The Cardinals announced that they released infielder Alex Cora and catcher Koyie Hill.  The Cards signed Cora to a minor league deal back in February that would have been worth $800K if he made the big league roster.  Hill, who spent 2011 with the Cubs, hooked on with the Cardinals in January.

Shew!! I was starting to get worried one of these guys might break camp with the big league club. Bullet dodged.

Wonder when Alex Cora will figure out it’s time to retire from playing and start coaching? he hasn’t had more than 1 step range since Boston let him walk 3 years ago, can’t/couldn’t ever really throw from 3b as a utility guy anyway and could never hit.. it was always befuddling that anyone (hello mets/Nats) ever saw fit to sign him for upwards of 2m these last 3 years for a non hitting, immovable object of a utility player these last 3 seasons.

Oh Greg, we will always have your outfield assist to nail Carl Crawford who had no business trying to take third in the first place to end the game in the middle of a playoff run<3

Are the Cardinals going to keep three catchers on the ML roster? Considering that Cruz can play multiple positions, having both he and Anderson backing up Molina makes sense.
