Outrighted To The Minors: Neshek, Pope, Walters

Here are the latest players to get outrighted to the minor leagues…

  • The Padres outrighted Pat Neshek to Triple-A today, according to MLB.com's Corey Brock (on Twitter). They had designated the reliever for assignment last Thursday.
  • The Yankees outrighted Ryan Pope to Triple-A, reports Marc Carig of The Star Ledger (on Twitter). Pope was designated for assignment last week, when the Yankees needed 40-man roster space for Jesus Montero. The 25-year-old righty posted a 5.12 ERA with 8.9 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 45 2/3 innings split between Double and Triple-A this year.
  • The Blue Jays outrighted P.J. Walters to the minor leagues, according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca (on Twitter). Walters appeared in one game for the Blue Jays after they acquired him in the deal that brought Colby Rasmus to Toronto. In 51 MLB innings, the right-hander has a 7.24 ERA with 7.1 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9.

He’s the only reliever we got back in the deal that’s still with the team.

I love how STL was just like “Here, you guys release these scrubs” and then TOR was like “k.”

Blue Jays have plenty of room in its budget to do more of these deals.  I can’t wait to see what trades are made during the winter meetings.

Sadly, StL got Corey Patterson and did not release him, allowing off-his-rocker LaRussa to bat him second a few games and overplay him in every way possible.

We really wanted Colby out of St. Louis, so he was going to go somewhere. Toronto won the bid with the talent we got back and helping us with salary relief of washed up veterns such as Tallet and Miller. Now I personally like PJ Walters, and miss him the most out of the 4 talents we gave up.

I want to see Pope pitch to Jesus. Even just for one batter.

Just to say I saw it happen.
