Here are Sunday’s minor moves from around MLB:
- Yankees pitcher Bruce Billings has accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Chris Cotillo tweets. He also notes that Phillies catcher Koyie Hill has accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
- The Yankees have outrighted pitcher Chris Leroux, according to MiLB.com. They designated him for assignment on Friday. Leroux has posted a 5.08 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 in 28 1/3 innings this season in Triple A.
- The Nationals have released left-hander Zach Jackson from their Triple-A affiliate, per the International League’s transactions page. Jackson, who signed a minor league deal with Washington in January, came out of the bullpen 26 times for Syracuse this season posting a line of 6.06 ERA, 6.6 K/9, 3.3 BB/9, and 10.9 H/9. The 31-year-old last pitched in a MLB game in 2009 when he made three appearances (one start) for the Indians, who acquired him the year before in the CC Sabathia trade.
- Per MLBTR’s DFA Tracker, nine players remain in DFA limbo: Esmil Rogers (Blue Jays), Juan Carlos Oviedo (Rays), George Kottaras (Cardinals), Jim Johnson (A’s), Matt Guerrier (Twins), Darwin Barney (Cubs), Tony Gwynn Jr. (Phillies), and Jose De Paula and Nick Noonan (Giants).
