The 29-year-old righty was pitching quite well at AAA Iowa, but there wasn’t going to be a spot for him this year.
I didn’t forget! Junior Lake got the business, Alfonso Soriano’s roster spot needs a taker, and Scott Baker’s rehab starts aren’t going well just yet.

Fairly significant cost savings and a decent pitching prospect. Nicely done, and farewell, Soriano.
