Outrighted To Triple-A: Sean West, Harold Garcia

We'll keep track of which players get outrighted off of 40-man rosters right here…

  • The Marlins outrighted left-hander Sean West to Triple-A New Orleans after he cleared waivers, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald tweets. West spent the 2011 season as a starter with New Orleans, posting a 5.59 ERA in 87 innings.
  • The Phillies announced that they outrighted infielder Harold Garcia off of their 40-man roster. He'll miss most of the season recovering from microfracture surgery on his right knee. Garcia, 25, spent the 2011 season with the Phillies' Double-A affiliate, but appeared in just 12 games. The shortstop/third baseman has a .292/.372/.432 line in 1634 minor league plate appearances over the course of seven seasons.

  1. Why the outright?  Couldn’t they just put him on the 60 day DL?  I mean its not like he is going to play this year, and putting him on the 60 day would have cleared his 40 man roster spot, am I right with that?  Are they hoping someone claims him?

      According to Wikipedia’s “disabled list” page, the 60-day DL move only clears a 40-man roster spot if the guy was on the 25-man active roster.  If he’s in the minors, he goes on the minor-league DL and the move doesn’t clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

    Someone else can pay for the cost of rehab.  Garcia’s not a highly regarded prospect, and as a 6-year minor-league vet he’ll be eligible for free agency after this season anyway.  I’d be very surprised if someone claims him.

      Garcia was once a promising prospect but injuries ruined that.
