Recapping yesterday's (08/22/11) minor transactions...

  • The New York Yankees have released infielder Terry Tiffee, reports Scranton Times-Tribune's Donnie Collins. Tiffee was playing for the Yankees Triple-A affiliate,  and was sporting a slash line of .339/.342/.523. The 32-year-old Tiffee hasn't played at the major-league level since 2008 with the Dodgers.
  • The Houston Astros have released left-handed pitcher Douglas Arguello from Class Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room for right-handed pitcher Jeff Fulchino, according to Houston Chronicle's Steve Campbell. Arguello, 26, was posting a 3.67 ERA and 8.0 K/9, but also a poor 6.0 BB/9 in in 68.2 innings of work. 
  • The New York Yankees have designated left-handed pitcher Aaron Laffey for assignment. Laffey made one outing for the Yankees, allowing seven of the fifteen batters he faced to reach base in three innings of work.
  • The San Francisco Giants have signed left-handed pitcher Jason Stevenson of the Independent North American Baseball League, according to the Giants transactions page. Stevenson has been assigned to Triple-A Fresno and made his professional debut Monday.
