A few morning links

When Chad Guadin was released by the Athletics, he found his way back to New York. When Brian Bruney was released by Washington, he found his way to … Nashville.

Jen Royle reported last night that Bruney has signed a minor league deal with the Brewers, which surely means an assignment to Triple-A Nashville to pitch in relief of Chase Wright. Bruney apparently has an out in his contract that kicks in after a month. If he’s not in the big leagues by then, he can look elsewhere.

Some other random notes and links…

• Within this report, Ed Price writes that he’s heard Astros ace Roy Oswalt would approve a trade only to the Cardinals, Phillies or Yankees. Oswalt has another year on his contract plus a club option, so he would cost quite a bit on the trade market.

• Hard-hitting corner infielder Jorge Vazquez was activated from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre’s disabled list and assigned to Double-A Trenton yesterday.

• Former Yankees minor leaguer Seth Fortenberry has caught on with the Marlins.

• The strange career of Dontrelle Willis has led him to Arizona, where he’ll join old friend Ian Kennedy in the Diamondbacks rotation. I tend to agree with Jon Paul Morosi: It’s a low risk move to the Diamondbacks, and could pay off  if Willis finds some level of comfort back in the National League.

The Blue Jays have traded Dana Eveland to the Pirates. That matters to the Yankees only because Eveland used to be with a Toronto team that has been surprisingly good this season.
