The latest minor moves…
- Prior to today’s game, the Tigers purchased the contract of lefty Tom Gorzelanny while optioning Shane Greene to Triple-A. Gorzelanny pitched in today’s 7-2 Tigers loss to the Red Sox, allowing a run in a third of an inning. The southpaw was designated for assignment then outrighted to Triple-A in July, and heading into today, Gorzelanny had posted a 6.38 ERA over 24 relief innings for Detroit.
- The Mariners have traded Triple-A third baseman Carlos Rivero to the Red Sox for cash considerations, as Greg Johns of MLB.com tweets. Rivero joined Seattle when he was claimed off waivers from the Red Sox in November of 2014. In December, the M’s re-signed him to a minor league deal. Rivero made his Major League debut last season, appearing in eight games with Boston. In part of five Triple-A seasons, Rivero has slashed .274/.324/.388.
- The Orioles announced that infielder Chris Parmelee has accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk. The O’s designated Parmelee for assignment when they acquired Gerardo Parra at the trade deadline and they outrighted him days later. He has hit .216/.255/.433 in 102 plate appearances with Baltimore.
