Denny Stark Rumors
Some linkage as we enter the post-draft hangover, with more to come:
- Troy E. Renck at the Denver Post offers up his theories for the Rockies' reasoning behind choosing Tyler Matzek--a potentially tough sign.
- According to Ryan Divish at the Tacoma Tribune News, RHP Denny Stark, who was designated for assignment on Sunday by the Mariners, has cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Tacoma.
- So says Zachary Levine at the Houston Chronicle, the Astros have outrighted RHP Geoff Geary to Triple-A Round Rock. He can report there or opt to become a free agent.
- La Velle E. Neal III at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has a handy rundown of all the Twins' picks. Troy E. Renck has a nice one for the Rockies, too.
- Chico Harlan at the Washington Post has a transcript of the press conference with Mike Rizzo and new pick Drew Storen.
- Keith Law at ESPN has a video recap of the high school talent in this year's draft.
Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times notes that the Mariners designated veteran reliever Denny Stark for assignment today to free up a roster spot for catcher Jamie Burke. Stark allowed 23 baserunners in just 11 innings for Seattle, leading to his 6.55 ERA. It was his first big league action since 2004.
