Here are the day’s minor moves from around the league…

  • The Indians announced that they’ve re-signed left-hander Tim Cooney to a minor league contract after releasing him at the end of camp. Cooney has been placed on the minor league disabled list due to a forearm strain. Cleveland claimed Cooney off waivers from the Cardinals this offseason after he missed the 2016 campaign due to shoulder surgery, and back in late February they announced that he’d miss 10 to 12 weeks with a flexor strain. That injury notwithstanding, it’s easy to see why the Indians have interest in keeping the southpaw on board; Cooney turned in six starts (31 1/3 innings) with a 3.16 ERA, 8.3 K/9, 2.9 BB/9 and a 37.9 percent ground-ball rate as a rookie in 2015. He also sports a career 3.35 ERA in 456 2/3 minor league innings, which includes a 3.21 ERA in nearly 250 innings of Triple-A work. Baseball America ranked him second among Cardinals prospects after the 2015 season, before injuries began to take their toll.
