Here are the latest minor moves from around the baseball world, with the newest transactions at the top of the post…
- The Dodgers have signed righty Daniel Corcino to a minor league deal. Corcino was with the Dodgers organization from 2015-16, though he didn’t see any major league action during that time. The 26-year-old’s only experience at the game’s highest level came with Cincinnati in 2014, when he pitched to a 4.34 ERA over 18 2/3 innings. Corcino, who opened this year with 9 1/3 subpar innings as a member of the Cubs’ Double-A affiliate, has logged a 4.19 ERA, 8.0 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 750 career minor league frames.
- The Reds purchased the contract of right-hander Asher Wojciechowski from Triple-A, the team announced. In corresponding moves, catcher Stuart Turner was placed on the 10-day DL with a right hamstring strain and righty Nefi Ogando was moved to the 60-day DL. Wojciechowski signed a minor league deal with the Reds last month after being released by the D’Backs near the end of Spring Training. The righty was selected 41st overall in the 2010 draft by the Blue Jays and he has 16 1/3 innings in the majors to his name, all with the Astros in 2015.
- Craig Gentry accepted his outright assignment to the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate, MASNsports.com’s Roch Kubatko tweets. Gentry was outrighted off Baltimore’s 40-man roster earlier this week, and he had the option of rejecting that assignment to become a free agent, though he has clearly chosen to remain in the organization. The veteran outfielder hit .162/.256/.270 in 44 plate appearance for the O’s this season.
- The Marlins outrighted Mike Aviles to Triple-A yesterday, as per a team announcement. Aviles was signed to a minor league deal less than two weeks ago and was already promoted for a brief stint in the bigs due to Miami’s lack of infield depth, though Aviles was designated for assignment after Christian Colon was claimed off waivers.
I’m surprised that Francisco Pena is still with the Os. I would have thought that someone would have taken him by now.
The guy hasn’t been able to hit in the minor leagues and defense can only get you so far.
Yeah but lots of teams could use a backup catcher and it doesn’t hurt to take a chance
I thought the same thing earlier. He has always been a capable backup catcher when he has gotten opportunities, I definitely thought someone else would’ve grabbed him and given him some more major league ABs
Wojo pitched 3.2 to get the win after driving up from Louisville. That’s a feel good story. I hope he can stick.

He was a bad motor finger
