The latest minor moves from around MLB…
- The Angels signed former first round pick Trevor Crowe to a minor league contract, according to the transactions page at CBSSports.com. The Indians recently released Crowe, who has a .245/.295/.329 batting line in parts of three MLB seasons (2009-11). The 28-year-old has a minor league batting line of .272/.358/.391 since being drafted with the 14th overall selection in 2005.
- The Athletics signed right-hander Matt McSwain, according to his agency, Oak Sports Management, on Twitter. The 26-year-old spent the first half of the season with Pittsburgh's Double-A affiliate and posted a 4.88 ERA with 6.7 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 in 55 1/3 innings.
Sad he never produced in Cleveland and I wish him the best.
We signed him for something big. I can feel it. This is the piece. Dipoto is readying the troops. Bourjos/Segura/Santana/Crowe for ??????
If any team was interested in Crowe enough for them to be a piece in a trade they would have picked him up already. Not that he is worth that much. He pretty much projects to be a 4th outfielder/defensive replacement at best.
