The Minnesota Twins have signed right-hander Cody Eppley to a minor league deal, a source has confirmed to MLBDailyDish.com. The 27-year old will report to Triple-A Rochester after being released by the New York Yankees earlier this month.
A key member of the Yankees bullpen in 2012 (1-2, 3.33 ERA in 59 appearances), Eppley spent the first part of this season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He struggled in 19 appearances, posting a 2-2 record and 8.53 ERA before being released on June 5th.
In 71 career major league appearances with the Rangers (2011) and Yankees (2012-2013), Eppley is 2-3 with a 4.61 ERA. He heads to Rochester in hopes of being able to contribute to the Twins bullpen as the season progresses.
