The latest outright assignments from around MLB…
- The Cardinals announced that they outrighted left-hander John Gaub off of the 40-man roster, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports (on Twitter). The move creates roster space for Chris Carpenter, who is returning to action from the 60-day disabled list. Gaub, 27, spent the 2012 season at Triple-A, posting a 5.40 ERA with 9.6 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in 53 1/3 innings for the top affiliates of the Cardinals, Rangers and Rays.
Who is John Gaub?
He was the inventor of the Gaubstopper. A hard candy with many layers and a sour center.
Did you say everlasting gaubstopper?
