Art of shooting

Coke again a free agent

Phil Coke’s stint with the Toronto Blue Jays didn’t last very long.
Less than a month after signing a minor league contract with Toronto, Coke is back on the free agent market.
The Sonora High graduate was signed May 31 by the Blue Jays and was assigned to their Triple-A affiliate the Buffalo Bisons. Ten days later he was called up to the big club and made his debut a short time after — two scoreless innings, two walks, two strikeouts.
The veteran in his eighth season got called to the mound seven days later, on Sunday, and pitched 2/3 of an inning and surrendered a home run to slugger Chris Davis.
Following the game, Toronto optioned Coke back to Buffalo but the lefty reliever refused the assignment and is back on the free agent market.
Coke, 32, started the season with the Chicago Cubs and was released May 18 after 16 appearances and a 6.30 earned run average. 
After reportedly being courted by up to 12 teams, Coke signed with Toronto and their work relationship lasted just 23 days.
