Today's minor moves from around the league...
- The Athletics have outrighted Hiroyuki Nakajima off their 40-man roster, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle tweets. Nakajima will remain with Triple-A Sacramento, where he has spent the entire season. The Japanese infielder signed a two-year, $6.5MM deal with Oakland in December and posted a .282/.336/.368 line in 324 minor league plate appearances.
- The Padres purchased the contract of catcher Chris Robinson from Triple-A Tucson, the team announced. In corresponding moves, Nick Hundley was put on the paternity list and Jason Marquis was transferred to the 60-day DL. Robinson, 29, was dealt from Baltimore to San Diego in June. The London, Ontario native was a third-round pick of the Tigers in the 2005 draft and has a .275/.320/.355 line in 2326 PA over nine minor league seasons.
- The Royals have outrighted catcher Brett Hayes to Triple-A Omaha, according to the Pacific Coast League transactions page. Hayes, 29, was designated for assignment after appearing in just three big league games for Kansas City this season. He's batted .231/.280/.441 in 68 Triple-A contests and is a career .219/.366/.364 hitter in 146 games at the Major League level -- all of which came with the Marlins prior to his brief stint with the Royals.
- With Hayes having been outrighted, just two players are currently in DFA limbo: Ryan Roberts of the Rays and Elliot Johnson of the Royals. Both were designated for assignment yesterday.
