MINNEAPOLIS -- The Anthony Slama experiment is over in Minnesota. Slama, 29, was released from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday. The right-hander spent seven seasons in the Twins minor league system after he was taken in the 39th round of the 2006 draft. Slama found success in the minors 455 strikeouts in 338 13 innings and a 2.45 ERA as a reliever but never got much of a chance in the majors. He appeared in just seven games and pitched a total of seven innings for the Twins in 2010 and 2011. That included just 2 13 innings in 2011. He allowed four runs on six hits with five strikeouts and five walks in 4 23 innings in 2010. The Twins also signed right-hander Cody Eppley to a minor league deal. Hell report to Rochester. Eppley has made 71 appearances in the majors with the Rangers and Yankees, including two games with New York this year. He has a career 4.61 ERA in 56 23 innings in the majors.
