Minor (League) moves

A couple of moves to let you know about.

Infielder Josh Wilson, who was designated for assignment this past week was claimed on waivers by the Padres, who are in need of a shortstop.

That move, plus the suspension of Triple-A infielder Agustin Murillo on Friday, left the D-backs short on infielders at the top level of the system.

To compensate, the club signed INF Abraham Nunez, who was playing for the Atlantic League Newark Bears to a Minor League contract and assigned him to Reno.

No, this is not the same Abraham Nunez that was traded from the D-backs’ system to the Marlins in the 1999 deal for Matt Mantei.
