Minor Moves: Chuck James, Matt Antonelli

We'll track the latest minor moves here…

  • Chuck James has indicated that the Mets released him from Triple-A Buffalo, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports (on Twitter). The Mets signed the left-hander to a minor league deal in December and he posted a 4.57 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9 in 18 appearances at Triple-A.
  • The Yankees released infielder Matt Antonelli, the team announced on its website. The Yankees claimed Antonelli from the Orioles in May then removed him from their roster to create space for Chad Qualls this past Sunday. Antonelli, a 27-year-old former first round pick, posted a .203/.333/.294 batting line in 172 plate appearances at Triple-A this year.

He’ll probably catch on somewhere.  He hit well last year and still takes a walk.

 Yep.. I’ll take Noaln Ryan in a brawl also.. Just ask Chisox manager Robin Ventura after he ill advisably charged him after Ryan drilled him.. Ryan put a good old fashioned whoopin on him, not to mention a few knots on his head…
