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.

      • 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.

  1. 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.
