Nothing particularly significant here, just another small part of getting caught up on the past week. Baseball America’s latest minor league transactions includes a few familiar names.
The Yankees have re-signed LHP Josh Romanski, who did a nice job splitting his season between the High-A rotation and the Double-A bullpen. He was originally a fourth-round pick of the Padres back in 2008, and he’s put up pretty solid results two years in a row for the Yankees. Probably nothing more than minor league depth, but he’s a lefty. Speaking of which, the Yankees also sign LHP Juan Cedeno out of independent ball.
A third left-hander, Steve Garrison, has signed a minor league deal with the Mariners. Garrison spent most of the year in Double-A, though he did get one big league call-up and make his big league debut. He was dumped from the 40-man, became a free agent and landed with the Mariners.
The Twins have siged OF Matt Carson, a former Yankees prospect who got some big league time recently with Oakland. C Omir Santos, another former fringe prospect with the Yankees, has re-signed with Detroit.
