Minor Moves: Slaten, Ohlendorf, Conrad

We'll keep track of today's minor moves in this post..

  • Pirates left-hander Doug Slaten, Padres right-hander Ross Ohlendorf, and Rays third baseman Brooks Conrad are free agents after recent outright assignments, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America (via Twitter).  Slaten appeared in ten major league games for Pittsburgh while posting a 2.11 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 40 relief appearances in Triple-A.  Ohlendorf had a 7.77 ERA with 39 strikeouts and 24 walks in nine starts and four relief appearances for the Padres over the summer.  Conrad saw time in 49 games for the Rays and Brewers in 2012.

    The Astros will sign Ohlendorf

    Slaten was good for the Bucs, not kept in the Majors and then they sign Takahashi and his 8.64 ERA. Stuff like this and the Erik Bedard fiasco are parts of my reasoning for “The Slide Of ’12″…

      agreed… another irrational move was when Brad Lincoln was essentially swapped with Chad “Ipecac” Qualls in the bullpen.

    Bedard looked strong at the beginning of the season and ran out of gas quickly. He may find a better niche as a lefty relief specialist.

  4. Time for the Pirates to talk about what a ‘workhorse’ Ohlendorf is and bring him back as the ‘find’ of 2013.
