Minor Moves: Waldis Joaquin

The latest minor moves from around MLB…

  • Right-hander Waldis Joaquin is now a free agent after clearing waivers, MLBTR has learned. The Giants designated the hard-throwing 24-year-old for assignment in November. Joaquin has made 19 relief appearances for the Giants from 2009-11, including five this past season. He spent most of 2011 at Triple-A Fresno, where he posted a 3.44 ERA with 4.9 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 49 2/3 innings. Joaquin will now pitch a few games in the Dominican Republic to get some work in.

Darren Ford can play major league ball. He was never given a real chance. This was probably Sabean not wanting to look bad in regards to having signed Rowand to a substantial contract and their bonehead committment to the ailing spinnerĀ Torres. Huff similar deal he played almost everyday even though you could smell his stink on the other side of the planet. I hope some other team picks up Ford and sticks with him.
