Rearick is back with the Padres just a few days after the Rangers themselves claimed him off waivers. Rearick had been designated for assignment by San Diego and was quickly DFA’ed again by Texas to make room for young lefty Andrew Faulkner. Rearick made his MLB debut earlier this season with the Padres, and he has a 12.00 ERA over three innings in the Show.
San Diego claimed Thielbar off waivers after Minnesota designated him assignment on July 31. The lefty has a 2.41 ERA over 41 innings for the Padres’ and Twins’ Triple-A affiliates, despite an unimpressive 1.09 K/BB rate (25 strikeouts and 23 walks). This year’s peripherals aside, Thielbar has posted solid numbers over his minor league career and he has a 2.74 ERA, 7.2 K/9 and 2.63 K/BB rate over 98 2/3 Major League innings with the Twins.
Thielbar joins five other players in “DFA limbo,” and you can keep track of their status via the MLB Trade Rumors DFA Tracker.
