Minor Moves: Pirates Release Cody Eppley

The Pittsburgh Pirates have released right-handed pitcher Cody Eppley, according to an Indianapolis Indians press release. The reliever was signed as a minor league free agent over the off-season, and pitched 14 innings with the Triple-A squad this year. He had a 6.43 ERA in those innings, with an 8:9 K/BB ratio. Eppley is a 28-year-old sidearm pitcher who has good velocity, but has struggled the last few years with his control in the upper levels.

  • When does Matt Benedict get released – he’s been horrible all season in Altoona.

    • Eggs Benedict or Benedict Arnold? – to be continued

    • R : Right after Tyler Sample and before Ralph Henriquez .

      • Sample has been horrendous – the Altoona bullpen, in general, has been horrendous and probably has cost that team 6-8 games already. Maybe more.

        • Might be worst I have seen in the Pittsburgh 16 seasons I have been watching them. And, Ralph Henriquez looks as though he doesn’t have any plan at all with the bat.

  • Weird. He pitched decently in the majors for the Yankees in 2012, but he was terrible in the minors last year and obviously didn’t recover.

    • He’s a local boy (to me). From the hamlet of Dillsburg, just south of Harrisburg. I was really rooting for him.
