Oswalt Purchased

  • P Roy Oswalt (#44) purchased from AAA Round Rock
  • 1B Mitch Moreland placed on 15 day DL, retro to Jun 20
  • P Mark Hamburger designated for assignment [ Link ]

Remarks: Well, we knew Oswalt was coming, it was just a matter of time.  Whether he’s good Oswalt, or the one that was “eh” at the end of his Philly career remains to be seen. His minor league starts aren’t any indicator, I think.   Moreland to the DL was a surprise.  I also kind of liked Mark Hamburger.  Whether it was the obvious joke possibility of his name, or his actual pitching, I honestly can’t say.  However, he did seem like a nice guy, and you never really want to lose nice guys.
