Here are today’s minor league transactions from around baseball, with the newest moves at the top of the post…
- The Cardinals outrighted right-hander Marcus Hatley and first baseman Dan Johnson off the 40-man roster and sent them to Triple-A, according to the club’s official transactions page. Both players were designated for assignment earlier in the week.
- Braves right-hander David Carpenter has accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A, SB Nation’s Chris Cotillo tweets. Carpenter was designated for assignment last week and had the option of becoming a free agent, which he declined to stay in the Braves organization. Carpenter has only appeared in four games for Atlanta this season, posting a 7.36 ERA over his 3 2/3 innings of work.
- The Brewers released infielder Donnie Murphy, as per the Pacific Coast League’s transactions page. Murphy signed a minor league contract with Milwaukee in February and had a .257/.352/.371 line over 162 PA at Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 32-year-old Murphy has appeared in parts of nine Major League seasons with five different teams since 2004.
- The Royals signed righty Paul Clemens to a minor league deal, according to MLB.com’s transactions page. Clemens posted a 5.51 ERA over 98 innings with the Astros in 2013-14 and a 5.54 ERA over 26 innings in the Phillies’ minor league system this season. He was released by the Phils in June.
- Chris Capuano has accepted his outright assignment from the Yankees and reported to Triple-A, SB Nation’s Chris Cotillo tweets. The veteran southpaw had the option of becoming a free agent, though doing so would’ve forfeited the roughly $1.7MM still owed to him on his Yankees contract for the rest of the season.
- Angels right-hander Jeremy McBryde has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A, the club’s communications department tweets. McBryde was designated for assignment earlier in the week. McBryde has a 4.07 ERA over 659 1/3 career minor league innings, though he’s struggled to a 5.63 ERA in 46 1/3 relief frames for the Halos’ Triple-A affiliate this season.
- While McBryde’s case has been settled, over 20 players are still in DFA limbo. Check out the MLB Trade Rumors DFA Tracker for a full accounting of the players still awaiting their next assignment.
