Here are the latest minor moves from the baseball world…
- The Blue Jays outrighted left-handed pitcher Ryan Feierabend to Triple-A, per Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet. The knuckleballer cleared waivers after he was designated by Toronto on Friday. In two outings for the Blue Jays, including one start, Feierabend was largely ineffective, conceding seven runs in 5 2/3 innings, including two home runs.
- Mets relievers Paul Sewald and Tim Peterson, each of whom was designated for assignment, have also cleared waivers and were outrighted to Triple-A, tweets Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. Control was an issue for Peterson, who walked six batters in his five appearances. Sewald misses a decent amount of bats, but is the owner of a mediocre 5.18 career ERA.
- The Tigers claimed 32-year-old right-handed pitcher Austin Adams, who had been designated by the Twins. According to Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group, Adams was subsequently placed on the active roster, replacing left-handed pitcher Matt Hall, who was optioned today after spending just one day with the Major League club.
You could say that about the entire Blue Jays bullpen, largely ineffective.
Cut sewald out of the organization he’s been awful
What!!?? Nobody wanted the 2 Mets relievers? I’m shocked!
Adams will fit right into the Tiger bullpen. 5 with era’s over 10. another 4 with era’s over 8.
Al is trying to catch lightning in a bottle…who knows, maybe this works out like JD Martinez
Please note massive sarcasm here…
