Outrighted: Michael Martinez, Jeremy Moore

We’ll keep track of the day’s outright assignments here…

  • The Phillies announced that they have outrighted infielder Michael Martinez to Triple-A.  Martinez, 30, saw time at shortstop, second base, third base, and every outfield position in parts of two big league seasons with the club.  In 133 games during that stretch, Martinez posted a slash line of .188/.241/.272.
  • The Angels outrighted outfielder Jeremy Moore to the minor leagues after removing him from the 60-day disabled list, according to the transactions page at CBSSports.com. Moore missed the entire 2012 season to undergo right hip surgery. The 25-year-old made his MLB debut a year ago, appearing in eight games for the 2011 Angels. He spent most of the ’11 season at Triple-A, posting a .298/.331/.545 batting line with 24 doubles, 18 triples and 15 home runs.

    He’ll be claimed

    What’s the deal with Moore, looks like a decent MiLB track record and he’s still young.

    Martinez is so bad. Can’t believe he’s already 30.

    Even though these may be very minor moves, I sense RAJ has something big up his sleeve.

      I have the same feeling too. Even though I’m not counting on it, I kinda believe he might try to trade for Justin Upton.

    • Dylan 3 years ago

      Signing any of Hamilton, Bourn, or Upton would be a mistake at their market value. So I hope by big moves, you mean trades.

      These are more or less moves intended to protect the likes of Trevor May, Ethan Martin, Jonathan Pettibone, among others from the rule 5 draft.

  5. Phillies have a ton of 2008 draftees needing Rule 5 protection
