Padres Claim Mark Hamburger Off Waivers

The Padres have claimed right-hander Mark Hamburger off waivers from the Rangers and optioned him to Triple-A, the team announced. Jeremy Hermida was transferred to the 60-day DL to clear a 40-man roster spot.

Hamburger, 25, had been designated for assignment late last week to clear a spot on the roster for Roy Oswalt. He appeared in five games for Texas last year and has spent this season at Triple-A, where he has a 6.55 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 45 1/3 innings.

Weren’t the Padres owned by a McDonald’s owner back in the day? Quite fitting now…

Now trade Chase Headley for David Freese, and then swing a deal for Phil Coke. Come see the Padres! Everyone gets Hamburger, Freese, and a Coke!

He’ll go well with their no. 1 draft choice, Max Fried.

His success will certainly depend on the quality of his cheese.

Someday I hope he plays on the same team as the University of South Carolina’s young shortstop Joey Pankake. Yes, pronounced pancake.

To make room on the 40 man roster for Hamburger, the Padres released Hot Dog.
