Minor Moves: Pirates Release Cody Eppley

The Pittsburgh Pirates have released right-handed pitcher Cody Eppley, according to an Indianapolis Indians press release. The reliever was signed as a minor league free agent over the off-season, and pitched 14 innings with the Triple-A squad this year. He had a 6.43 ERA in those innings, with an 8:9 K/BB ratio. Eppley is a 28-year-old sidearm pitcher who has good velocity, but has struggled the last few years with his control in the upper levels.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

When does Matt Benedict get released – he’s been horrible all season in Altoona.

R : Right after Tyler Sample and before Ralph Henriquez .

R Edwards

Sample has been horrendous – the Altoona bullpen, in general, has been horrendous and probably has cost that team 6-8 games already. Maybe more.

leowalter

Might be worst I have seen in the Pittsburgh 16 seasons I have been watching them. And, Ralph Henriquez looks as though he doesn’t have any plan at all with the bat.

Eggs Benedict or Benedict Arnold? – to be continued

WTM

Weird. He pitched decently in the majors for the Yankees in 2012, but he was terrible in the minors last year and obviously didn’t recover.

Lee Young

He’s a local boy (to me). From the hamlet of Dillsburg, just south of Harrisburg. I was really rooting for him.
