Petit, Davies Declare Free Agency

The 2015-2016 off-season is officially underway in the minors and with that two former New York Yankees minor leaguers have declared free agency.  They are right-handed pitcher Kyle Davis and back-up infielder Gregorio Petit.

Davies, 32, spent most of the 2015 season in the rotation of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders where he was one of their best starting pitchers.  In 27 games with the RailRiders, he earned an 11-8 record with a 3.30 ERA over 152 2/3 innings pitched.  He struck out 99 batters, walked 36 and allowed 155 hits.  Kyle made a 1-game appearance with the Bronx Bombers back in April, throwing 2 1/3 shutout innings, allowing 3 this and striking out 2.

Petit, 30, was acquired in April from the Houston Astros in exchange for cash to be an extra infielder off the bench.  He appeared in 20 games for the big club, where he hit just .167 over 42 at bats.  In Triple-A he hit .30 with 40 hits, 10 doubles nad 2 homeruns in 46 games.
