Per Matt Gelb (@Magelb) on Twitter:
“Matt Rizzotti was traded to Minnesota for cash considerations.”
Bummer, I like him. Good luck Matt!
Some transactions for today:
The White Sox Released Delwyn Young
The White Sox also received former Phillie prospect Greg Golson from the Royals for cash considerations. Might see him back at CCP this summer.
The Phillies received SS Chin-Lung Hu from the Reds for cash but reports show (Matt Gelb via Twitter) that Hu failed his physical. Adds a big question mark at shortstop for the IronPigs if Galvis starts up with the Phillies. The The Hog Blog noted that the Phillies signed Utility man Joe Thurston and I could imagine he might be our shortstop.
The Dodgers released former IronPig Cedric Bowers.
The Phillies released:
RHP Paul Cusick
RHP Rye Davis
RHP Ian Durham
RHP Juary Gomez
RHP Chase Johnson
LHP Rob Cooper
LHP Fabian Cota
LHP Jack Van Leur
1B Mike Marshall
3B Geancarlo Mendez
OF Luis Unda
A lot of transactions going on this week and expect more next week. Those last minute signings after players are released during spring training!
