Baseball America's Matt Eddy brings us the latest round of minor league transactions, with a few noteworthy moves to mention. Let's take a look….
- The Phillies released Josh Fogg, who they had signed just before the season started. Fogg got knocked around at Double-A Reading, allowing 13 earned runs and 27 baserunners in just 10.1 IP.
- Angel Berroa was let go by the Giants, after he hit .205/.247/.307 in 94 Triple-A plate appearances. His release came two months after the team had inked him to a minor league deal.
- After serving a 50-game suspension for a drug violation, Adam Bostick was released by the Royals. The club also parted ways with Jorge Campillo, who posted a 3.91 ERA in 158.2 innings for the Braves in 2008.
- The Twins signed D'Angelo Jimenez, who had been playing in the Mexican League. The 32-year-old, who always displayed strong on-base skills, last appeared in the majors in 2007 with Washington, hitting .245/.379/.373 in 128 plate appearances.
- The Reds released left-hander Daryl Harang, Aaron Harang's younger brother.
not that big of a deal but the phils triple A affiliate is Leigh Valley not Reading… that is double A
My bad, thanks for the catch… Makes Fogg’s performance looks even worse.
Kind of hard to make that look much worse.
Wonder why they got rid of Harrang’s younger brother is this a sign of things to come for the older brother. I could see him being a part of a package to upgrade the pitching.
Best of luck to Jorge, I will always remember “Mexican Maddux” from his Braves days…
