According to Buster Olney in his blog today:
"Heard last night, by the way, that Jorge Cantu will swallow his frustration with being sent to Triple-A and head to Durham, rather than walk away, something he had initially talked about doing. He really doesn’t have a choice."
Cantu is just going to have to put his head down and put up some big numbers in Triple A to earn a trade back into a full-time job. Last time he was in Triple A, he hit .302/.335/.576 with 22 HR in 368 ABs. The 25 year-old might be able to help out in Oakland, Atlanta, Cincinnati, or Washington. I know some people want him on the Mets, and I suppose that could happen. But I’d rather have Jose Valentin right now.
Also an interesting D-Rays read – looks like Scott Boras’s camp never informed Seth McClung that he an option left. Oops.
