Minor Moves: Adam Russell

We'll keep tabs on any Turkey Day minor moves right here …

  • The Diamondbacks have signed 6'8 righty Adam Russell, the thirty-year-old reliever tweeted (hat tip to Steve Melewski of MASNsports.com). Contract details are not yet known. Russell last appeared in the bigs in 2011 with the Rays, logging 32 2/3 innings of 3.03 ERA ball, though it came with a 0.65 K:BB ratio. He did, however, flash over 10 K/9 in two prior stints with the Padres. Last year, throwing for the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk, Russell put up a 2.37 ERA in 60 2/3 innings pitched, on the back of 8.8 K/9 against 4.9 BB/9.
  • The MLBTR DFA Tracker shows the following players in limbo: J.C. Gutierrez, Johnny Monell, Francisco Peguero, Derrick Robinson, Tyler Cloyd, Garrett Jones, and Kyle McPherson.
