Royals Designate Anthony Lerew For Assignment

A day after the Royals acquired Sean O'Sullivan from the Angels in exchange for Alberto Callaspo, Kansas City has added O'Sullivan to their active roster. To make room for the right-hander, the team designated Anthony Lerew for assignment, according to a press release.

Lerew started six games for the Royals this year, compiling a 3.63 ERA in his first three starts before getting hit hard (18.00 ERA) in his next three. Lerew's 26.1 IP represent a career high for the former Brave, who was ranked as a top-100 prospect by Baseball America in both 2005 and 2006.

This is the second time this season that the Royals have designated the 27-year-old for assignment.

the Halos have added O’Sullivan to their active roster? Shouldn’t that be Royals Luke?

I think Luke needs to proof-read his work before posting.

Or am I confused?

How can the Angels add a player to their roster the day after they trade him?

My bad, obviously that should’ve read the Royals, not the Angels. Thanks guys.

Was Lerew ever part of KC’s future plans or was he just a filler because of injuries?

He was a filler, and not a good one for that matter. Seemed like a nice guy for what that is worth.

He is not always awful. He is just awful each year after getting 80 or so innings on his arm. What does that tell you about his likely future?
