Dodgers signed OF Cory Sullivan to a minor league contract.

He'll also get an invite to spring training. Sullivan, 32, batted .210/.336/.250 in 123 plate appearances with Triple-A Lehigh Valley in the Phillies' organization this past season. He hasn't played in the big leagues since 2010 as a member of the Astros.

Phillies released OF Cory Sullivan.

They needed to clear a spot on Triple-A Lehigh Valley's roster for Scott Podsednik, and Sullivan gets the boot. The veteran outfielder will try to catch on elsewhere after batting .210/.336/.250 over 100 at-bats at Triple-A.

Phillies signed OF Cory Sullivan to a minor league contract.

The deal does not carry an invitation to spring training, so Sullivan will be in minor league camp this March. He batted just .188 in 64 at-bats last season for the Astros before they designated him for assignment in late June. No other team scooped him up after that and things would have to go seriously wrong in Philly this season for the 31-year-old to climb all the way to the majors.

Cory Sullivan has elected to become a free agent.

The outfielder was designated for assignment a couple of days ago after putting up a paltry .190 batting average in 63 at-bats for the Astros. Sullivan, 30, will try to latch on with a different organization.

Astros designated OF Cory Sullivan for assignment.

He was batting .190 in 63 at-bats. Sullivan isn't a particularly good defender nor does he have any plate discipline, so it's highly likely he will pass through waivers.

Astros purchased the contract of OF Corey Sullivan from Triple-A Round Rock.

Not bad for someone who came into camp as a non-roster invitee. Sullivan will be the fifth outfielder behind Carlos Lee, Michael Bourne, Hunter Pence and Jason Michaels.

Astros signed OF Cory Sullivan to a minor league contract.

Sullivan was non-tendered by the Mets after hitting .250/.338/.382 in 126 at-bats. The 30 year old will contend for a backup outfield spot. The lefty isn't a particularly good defender nor does he have any plate discipline, things that undoubtedly appealed to GM Ed Wade.

Mets non-tendered outfielder Cory Sullivan.

Sullivan hit .250/.338/.382 in 136 at-bats for the Mets last season. He's a perfectly adequate fifth outfielder, but the Mets didn't want to commit to him in that role just yet. They might re-sign him later.

Cory Sullivan was 2-for-2 with two walks, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Cubs on Friday night.

Sullivan's second-inning solo shot off Carlos Zambrano was his first tater since September 12, 2007 as a member of the Rockies. He later chipped in with an RBI single in the Mets five-run eighth. Sullivan is batting .283/.354/.424 with 12 RBI and six stolen bases in 41 games with the Mets this season. Like Angel Pagan, Sullivan is another player taking advantage of a depleted Mets roster. He shouldn't play a significant role on the club next season.

Mets recalled outfielder Cory Sullivan from Triple-A Buffalo.

The former Rockie is a career .279/.330/.391 hitter in over 1,000 plate appearances. He gives the Mets insurance on the hobbled Gary Sheffield, who was out of the lineup for the third consecutive game on Monday. If Sheffield needs to spend time on the disabled list, Sullivan would get an extended audition. If Sheffield can play through his hamstring injury, Sullivan's stay could be short with the team needing a roster spot for Fernando Nieve's replacement in the rotation.

Mets optioned OF Cory Sullivan and RHP Carlos Muniz to Triple-A Buffalo; reassigned RHP Nelson Figueroa, C Rene Rivera and INF Andy Green to minor league camp

Sullivan started off hot, but he faded to .245/.327/.306, making Jeremy Reed an obvious choice over him for a bench job. Muniz and Figueroa are used to shuffling back and forth between Triple-A and the majors and could do it again this season.

Cory Sullivan went 3-for-4 with two walks Tuesday as the Mets and Nationals played to a 5-5 tie in 10 innings.

If Angel Pagan undergoes surgery, then it would seem to be down to Sullivan and Jeremy Reed for one spot in the Mets' outfield. Sullivan is hitting .364/.462/.364 in 22 at-bats. Reed is at .280/.357/.400 in 25 at-bats.

Cory Sullivan hit a game-tying homer in the bottom of the ninth and Jeremy Reed won it with an RBI triple as the Mets edged Italy 3-2 on Thursday.

Italy had a shutout going until Sullivan hit a two-run homer in his lone at-bat of the game. Daniel Murphy went on to single, and Reed tripled him in to end the contest. Sullivan, Reed and Angel Pagan appear to be competing for one spot on the Mets' bench. Pagan is still having the best spring of the bunch, as he's 7-for-15 with four walks.

Mets signed outfielder Cory Sullivan, who had been with the Rockies, to a one-year, $600,000 contract.

Sullivan, a .279/.330/.391 hitter in 927 at-bats with the Rockies, will battle Angel Pagan and Jeremy Reed for a spot on the Mets. It's close, but he might be the best player in the group. He's probably the top defender.
