Here are today’s minor transactions from around the league…
- Outfielder David Nick has signed a minor league deal with the Braves, according to the MLB.com transactions page. The 24-year-old had spent his entire career in the Diamondbacks organization after being taken in the fourth round of the 2009 draft, but never rose above Double-A. He has just a .241/.294/.339 line in 568 plate appearances at that level.
- The Dodgers have released lefty Daniel Moskos, according to the PCL transactions page. Moskos, 28, had struggled to a 6.52 ERA in 9 2/3 innings of relief at the Triple-A level. The fourth overall choice in the 2007 draft, Moskos had a productive half year with the Pirates back in 2011 (2.96 ERA in 24 1/3 frames), but has not seen the show since.
- Though he had the opportunity to elect free agency, right-hander Chris Leroux has accepted his outright assignment from the Yankees, tweets Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish. Leroux has a decent amount of big league experience and posted strong results for the 2011 Pirates, but he’s had difficulty sticking in the Majors.
- A look at MLBTR’s DFA Tracker reveals an unusually veteran crop of players in DFA limbo: Xavier Nady (Padres), Heath Bell (Rays), George Kottaras (Indians) and Elliot Johnson (Indians) are all currently waiting to learn their fate.
