Early November Waiver Claim Highlights

  • Long-time followers of my work know Im a nut for moves that are largely irrelevant, for Jimmy Hall Jersey example each one of these off-season waiver claims. Rather than attempt to cover these, Im going to try to touch on the more interesting ones. Whether other people is interested or otherwise is beyond me, but let's begin:

    SEA claims RHP Yusmeiro Petit from ARZWAS claims LHP Doug Slaten from ARZ

    Arizona loses some pitching depth, although neither figured to contribute much heading forward. Slaten is a typical lefty reliever and Petit is a back-of- Rakeem Nunez-Roches Jersey the-rotation arm with lackluster stuff and statistics.

    TB claims RHP Ramon A. Ramirez from CIN

    Ramirez has split time between the pen and rotation over the last 2 yrs. His change-up seems a little interesting, although that is sucked from small sample sizes within the Majors. Probably Triple-A bound, whether its the rotation or bullpen is to be seen.

    TOR claims SS Mike McCoy from COLTOR claims INF Jarrett Hoffpauir from STL Bryan Witzmann Jersey

    McCoy moves to his fourth org in 4 years. Hes a brief (59) utility man pretty much the textbook Toronto infielder. Hell be 29 not too deep into next season and it has six career plate appearances at the Majors. Meanwhile Hoffpauir has hit well throughout his Triple-A career: Kenneth Acker Jersey over 1,100 plate appearances producing a .285/.362/.428 line. Hes 26 years old and also got a cup of coffee last season for the Cardinals.

    Worst case is winding up playing significant amount of time in the majors. Best: both providing an additional padding of depth in the high minors.

    BAL claims RHP Armando Gabino from MIN

    Gabino actually started a game title for the Twins last season. He found little succe s in his brief major league stint, but Kenny Cook Jersey his minor league history is generally decent. His fastball sits within the low-90s and that he favored a slider on the change-up per our pitch data. His strikeout totals have never been too impre sive either, however they have been consistent level-to-level.
