Yesterday I posted my plan for upcoming articles and now I’m already a day behind. So goes life I suppose. Here is the Market Fresh update I intended to write and publish yesterday.
The Oakland Athletics 2B-Gregorio Petit (25) was outrighted to Triple-A Sacremento on Thursday after being DFA’d February 1st.
Also on Thursday, RHP-Armando Gabino (26) was outrighted by the Baltimore Orioles to Triple-A Norfolk.
It turns out that RHP-Gaby Hernandez (23) was not outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma by Seattle Mariners on February 9th. Instead he was claimed off waivers by the Boston Red Sox on the 10th. To make room for Hernandez, the Red Sox designated RHP-Robert Manuel (26) for assignment.
The New York Mets DFA’d RHP-Jack Egbert (26) on February 9th to make room for OF-Jason Pridie. Egbert stuck with the Mets for a grand total of five months after being claimed off waivers from the Chicago White Sox back in September.
Also on February 9th, the San Diego Padres placed RHP-Greg Burke (27) on unconditional waivers. Burke, who is recovering from October shoulder surgery, can refuse any claim and opt for free agency if he chooses to do so.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Texas Rangers 2B-Joaquin Arias (25) can expect to be on the trading block if he doesn’t make the team as a backup infielder. He will be competing with former Royals infielder Esteban German, among others, to earn a roster spot. Arias isn’t officially on the market, but I might do a Market Fresh profile on him regardless because he is someone who intrigues me.
