The White Sox assigned Parrino to minor league camp Wednesday, the Chicago Tribune reports. Parrino, signed to a minor league deal in the offseason, never had a realistic chance of making the 25-man roster. He should start the year at Triple-A Charlotte and will need a spate of injuries in the major league infield to get the call to Chicago.
Parrino has signed a minor league contract with the White Sox, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports. Parrino saw just six at-bats with Oakland last season, spending the majority of the season with Triple-A Nashville. That seems the likely scenario for him again in 2015, but it's possible the White Sox will give him a shot in spring training.
The Athletics have announced that infielder Andy Parrino has been outrighted to Triple-A Nashville. He had been designated for assignment Friday. Parrino has appeared in 17 games this season, but mostly as a defensive replacement. He's hitless in six at-bats.
The Athletics announced that they have Davis optioned Arnold Leon to Nashville and designated Andy Parrino for assignment. This was a corresponding move to bring back Edward Mujica and Ike Davis from the disabled list. Mujica had a thumb injury and Davis was dealing with a quadricep injury.
As expected, the Athletics placed reliever Edward Mujica on the 15-day disabled list on Friday with a fractured thumb. Mujica suffered the injury during Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Rays. He held a 3.32 ERA at the time of the injury. In a corresponding move, Oakland selected the contract of infielder Andy Parrino from Triple-A Nashville. Parrino hit .273 (38 for 139) with six doubles, two triples, four homers, 12 RBI, 20 walks and 43 strikeouts in 38 games at Triple-A this season. The A's also added Tyler Ladendorf (ankle) to the 60-day disabled list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
