With a day’s moves, a Friars will bid adieu to Edwards after a brief stay in a organization. He was combined as a buy-low claimant in a mid-season swap, though struggled in brief movement and finished adult going down with injury.
Mejias-Brean was sincerely prolific during all levels though evidently didn’t convince. The 28-year-old infielder warranted his initial ambience of a majors after slicing .316/.371/.455 in 448 Triple-A image appearances. He managed dual doubles and dual dingers in his 33 trips to a image with a large club.

Yardley, 29, was effective all year prolonged during both Triple-A and in a brief MLB debut. All told, he authorised usually 17 warranted runs in 75 1/3 frames.
