Minor League Transactions: June 15-27

Players listed with an asterisk (*) signed minor league contracts, replacing major league pacts with the same organization. That's a fancy way of saying the player has been optioned or outrighted to the minors.

Numbers in parentheses indicate draft round.

Arizona Diamondbacks
RHP Jason Postill (NDFA—West Florida), RHP Drew Zizinia (NDFA—Tulane)
Optioned to Triple-A: RHP Bryan Shaw, RHP Esmerling Vasquez

The Braves claimed Dustin Richardson on waivers from the Marlins, who in turn had acquired Richardson from the Red Sox last November for Andrew Miller. Florida cut Richardson to make room for Dewayne Wise on the 40-man, so apparently they weren't too keen on his work against lefthanded batters for Triple-A New Orleans. They went 15-for-44 (.341) with 10 walks and a homer.
