Minor Moves: Jesus Sanchez, Matt Angle, Josh Spence

Here are some minor signings we learned of today:

  • In addition to naming the club's Spring Training invites, the Marlins also announced several minor league contracts, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Along with the previously reported inking of Kevin Slowey and Joe Benson, Miami has reached deals with three additional players. 26-year-old righty Jesus Sanchez has posted solid numbers in the upper minors since shifting to a relief role. Last year, with the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate, he posted a 2.83 ERA in 70 innings (over 48 outings) while registering 6.4 K/9 against 2.3 BB/9. Outfielder Matt Angle, 28, received 95 plate appearances with the Orioles in 2011. Spending the last two seasons at Triple-A for the Dodgers, he managed a .283/.374/.433 triple-slash in 2013.  Southpaw Josh Spence, a 25-year-old Aussie, has 40 innings of 3.15 ERA ball under his belt at the MLB level. He threw 43 innings for the Yankees' top affiliate last year, netting a 3.98 ERA with 8.6 K/9 versus 3.6 BB/9.
  • Looking at MLBTR's DFA Tracker, only Santos Rodriguez (White Sox) remains in limbo at the moment.

Wrong link for Jesus Sanchez.

Wondered why he never got a look from the Brewers, especially with the repeated turnovers in their bullpen.
