Dempster on Restricted List

  • P Ryan Dempster placed on 15 day DL
  • OF Leonys Martin recalled from AAA [ Link ]

NOTES: Apparently, Ryan Dempster has some sort of odd visa issue relative to Canada, and he’s not permitted to enter the country.   Don’t know why, but there it is.   Due to that, the Rangers put him on a “restricted list”, and called up Leonys Martin to take his 25 man roster spot.  Roy Oswalt will take his start in Toronto on Saturday, and probably frown on the bench again.   This will go away after the Sunday game when the team returns to the US.   Odd transaction, I admit.
