The latest minor moves from around MLB…
- The Angels have signed outfielder Cory Aldridge to a minor league deal, reports Bill Shaikin of The Los Angeles Times (on Twitter). The 32-year-old hit .363/.440/.650 in the Mexican League this year after not playing in 2011. Aldridge has 18 career big league plate appearances to his credit with the 2001 Braves and 2010 Angels.
- The Braves signed infielder Lance Zawadzki to a minor league contract, according to the transactions page at CBSSports.com. The 26-year-old switch-hitter has big league experience with the 2010 Padres and had spent the early part of the 2012 season with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate. Zawadzki owns a .259/.332/.394 batting line in parts of six minor league seasons.
That’s zawada zs
So we traded Sutton for cash, to turn around and sign this guy. Huh?(scratching my head with this series of moves)
THe Braves must have been looking for more defense from their AAA SS. By most accounts, Zawadzki has a better glove then Sutton.
this does seem a bit odd. Perhaps Oswalt forcefully rejected their advances?
Ha! Saw Aldridge play in Korea.
