One of my favorite things to do twice a month is scroll through Baseball America’s minor league transactions page. It’s always fun to see where former Yankees are currently finding/losing employment (Travis Lee was signed and released by the Nats so fast that both moves show up on the same page), as well as scroll around for potential scrap heap pickups, like sinkerballing reliever Bob Zimmermann, who the Angels just cut loose.
Anywho, here’s some highlights from the most recent set of moves:
- The Yanks cut ties with LHPs Abel Gomez and RJ Swindle, OFer Estee Harris, and 1B Karl Amonite. They also marked the end of an era by releasing OF Jon Poterson.
