Twins sign ex-Yankee reliever Cody Eppley

The Minnesota Twins have signed ex-Yankees reliever Cody Eppley to a minor league deal, and assigned him to Triple-A Rochester, according to the Yankees' YES network.

To make room, the Twins released righthander Anthony Slama:

Eppley, 27, was released by the Yankees on June 5. He started the 2013 season in the New York bullpen, but was eventually sent down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

In 71 appearances for the Yankees and Texas Rangers, Eppley is 2-3 with a 4.61 ERA.

SB Nation figures Eppley won't make much of a dent -- if any -- in the Twins bullpen. But he could be a find for the Triple-A club, especially when it comes to piling up strikeouts against minor league batters.

This one is a classic, with the side-winder getting plunked by Yankees 3rd-baseman Eric Chavez last summer:
