Espinal cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
ANALYSIS
Espinal made the second and third appearances of his big-league career this season, allowing four runs in 4.2 innings of work. Given that he's already 31 years old and has made a minimal impact at the highest level, it's no surprise to see him pass through waivers unclaimed.
