Matt Eddy:

Signed: RHP Dylan Axelrod (Windy City (Frontier)), RHP Jarrett Coker (NDFA—Columbus State (Ga.)), RHP Greg Johnson (NDFA—South Alabama), Draft pick signed: RHP Taylor Thompson (44), Released: OF Dallas Williams, Traded: 1B Daryle Ward and OF Norris Hopper to Nationals for cash

Thompson stats: 2009, 2008, 2007

Coker stats: 2009, 2007, 2006

UPDATE: More on Axelrod:

Axelrod was signed by the White Sox on Aug. 4, a move that was only surprising because of its timing. Frontier League players are rarely signed to affiliated clubs so late in the season. Axelrod certainly earned the chance, compiling a 3-1 record, six saves and a 2.21 ERA in 61 innings with the T-Bolts.
