After a disappointing departure from the Brewers organization in 2014, Nicky Delmonico (from KRod trade version 1.0) has made it to the majors with the White Sox.

Per Baseball America --

Rangers release RH reliever Jaye Chapman, who struggled at AAA this summer.

Dodgers release Brewers 2012 1st round pick Victor Roache, who hit six home runs in 35 California League (High-A) games for LA, but hit only .192 with an OBP of .257 in 125 AB's.

His .396 AVG and 1.088 OPS in his first 48 ABs isn't too shabby. Wish he wouldn't have pulled a Larry Sanders (for the Bucks fans) and quit on the organization.

interesting article on BR about Delmonico that sheds a lot of light on his mysterious release from the Brewers. Glad to see him turn things around. inspiring story of recovery but also subtly hits at a growing problem with the medical/pharm industry prescribing dangerous, addictive drugs to address symptoms. as someone who struggles with addiction myself, i can sympathize w a lot of the things Nicky touches on- keeping things a secret, struggling with them on your own, letting yourself and others down, perpetuating a cycle of dependence. wish things could have turned out differently from a brewer fan perspective, but from a human perspective, happy to see him have success.

Catching up with OF D'Vontrey Richardson, and where he is now in his independent league odyssey.

Reliever Tayler Scott, traded to Texas for Jeremy Jeffress at the deadline, was eligible to be a minor league free agent this fall, but has decided to re-sign a minor league deal for 2018 offered by the Rangers, no word if a big league camp invite is involved.

As you'll see at the link above, Scott was immediately bumped from AA (Biloxi) to AAA Round Rock after the trade, and did not exactly shine in 12 outings. The Rangers will overlook that relatively small sample and keep him in the organization.
