Minor Moves: Erik Hamren, Robert Coello

Here are the day’s minor moves:

  • The Rangers have added righty Erik Hamren on a minor league deal, signing him away from the independent Southern Maryland Blue Crabs, his former club announced. The 27-year-old tossed 12 1/3 frames for the Padres in 2011, but struggled with his control (6.6 BB/9). Last year, he spent time with the Double-A affiliates of the Braves and Rays.
  • The Orioles have signed right-hander Robert Coello to a minor league deal, reports David Hall of the Virginia-Pilot (via Twitter). Coello, 29, has thrown 32 innings of 1.69 ERA ball for the Yankees’ top affiliate this year. Over parts of three MLB seasons, including time last year with the Angels, Coello owns a 5.90 ERA with 12.1 K/9 against 5.3 BB/9.
