Minor Moves: Septimo, Carroll, Atilano, Garner

Here are today's minor moves and outright assignments from around the league…

  • Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports (Twitter links) that four former Major Leaguers have signed with the independent Atlantic League's Lancaster Barnstormers: left-hander Leyson Septimo, outfielder Brett Carroll, right-hander Luis Atilano and outfielder Cole Garner. Septimo (White Sox) and Carroll (Nationals) both appeared in the Majors as recently as 2012. Garner hasn't seen the bigs since a brief callup with the 2011 Rockies, and Atilano hasn't pitched in the Majors since 2010 with the Nats.
  • Four players currently reside in DFA limbo (as shown in our DFA Tracker): Jimmy Paredes of the Marlins, Donovan Hand of the Brewers, Brett Wallace of the Astros and Emilio Bonifacio of the Royals. Bonifacio, however, will soon learn his fate, as he's reportedly been placed on release waivers. Teams will have until tomorrow to claim him and his $3.5MM salary. Otherwise, he'll be eligible to sign anywhere as a free agent.

Hope the Cubs claim Bonifacio and cut Luis Valbuena. He’s awful and hopefully Mike Olt wins the 3rd base job. Bonifacio be our main back up infielder

Bonifacio improved his game with Royals. Not a big fan of any player that relies so heavily on speed, but i wouldtn mind Braves using him a 2B instead of Uggla

I hope he ends up with the Yankees; they need some 2b/3b depth
