Here's a roundup of today's minor moves:
Rockies sign Xavier Nady
The Colorado Rockies have signed Xavier Nady to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Colorado Springs, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Nady, 34, was granted his release from the Royals on Saturday after exercising the opt-out clause in his contract.
In 70 games with Triple-A Omaha, Nady hit .310 with 11 HR and 43 RBI, and has impressed scouts with his recent offensive performance. MLBDailyDish's Chris Cotillo was the first to report that the Rockies were a possible destination for the veteran.
Blue Jays sign Ramon Hernandez
The Toronto Blue Jays announced that they signed veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.
The 37-year old former All-Star hit .208 with 3 HR and 6 RBI in 17 games for the Dodgers on the season, and was released on June 22nd. He will head to Triple-A to provide veteran depth for the Jays, and may be called up to the majors if the need arises due to injuries.

The Cleveland Indians have signed right-hander Boof Bonser to a minor league contract, in a move first reported by Robert Murray of MLBInjuryNews.com.
Bonser, 31, was released from Triple-A Fresno by the Giants on Thursday after posting a 2-6 record and 5.87 ERA in 15 starts on the season. He last appeared in the majors in 2010 with the Athletics, and will report to Triple-A Columbus.
