The Twins have signed right-hander Cody Eppley to a minor league contract, according to Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com (on Twitter). Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN has confirmed the signing with a Twins official and adds that the 27-year-old Eppley is likely ticketed for Triple-A Rochester (Twitter link).
Eppley broke camp with the Yankees this season but pitched just 1 2/3 innings before being outrighted to Triple-A. He pitched 46 innings of 3.33 ERA ball with 6.3 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 out of the Yankees' bullpen in 2012.
Eppley was selected out of Virginia Commonwealth in the 43rd round of the 2008 draft by the Rangers, and he has appeared in parts of three Major League seasons despite that being selected so far down in the draft. He is represented by Paragon Sports International.
