Hmm, no one wanted to give this guy a shot? Looks pretty good stat wise…

I’m shocked nobody picked him up, too.  Either it reflects some kind of unwritten rule of etiquette that I don’t know about or everybody knows he’s got a shoulder injury or some other injury that make him a waste of a roster spot.  His stats in the minors for 80% or so of the year were extremely impressive.

It is hard to find a place for a guy like this on the 40-man roster if he is out of assignment options and is not a certainty for the 25-man roster.  Especially at this time of year when most 40-man rosters are full.

1 2/3 career innings at the MLB level, with 5 BB’s to go against it.  Impressive.
