Minor Moves: Volstad, Hughes

We'll keep track of today's minor moves here..

  • Right-handed pitcher Chris Volstad cleared waivers and accepted his assignment to rejoin the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate, according to the Sky Sox's Twitter feed.  Volstad was waived last week to make room on the roster for Roy Oswalt.
  • Left-hander Dusty Hughes has retired from baseball, MLBTR's Chris Cotillo has learned. Hughes, who was released by the Braves in May, posted a 4.99 ERA with a 6.5 K/9 and 4.3 BB/9 in 80 appearances over three major league seasons with the Royals and Twins.  The 30-year old will become a coach at a private school.
