Several Moves

  • P Smokin’ Joe Ortiz recalled from AAA
  • C Robinson Chirinos recalled from AAA
  • IF Jeff Baker placed on 15 day DL, retro to Jun 13
  • 1B Chris McGuiness optioned to AAA [ Link ]

NOTES:  McGuinness wasn’t doing much, so he was an obvious candidate to go to AAA if someone had to go.  Jeff Baker going to the DL is unfortunate, I’ve rather liked how he’s been going.    Smokin’ Joe is back (I’m still calling him that – pbbbbt), probably due to bullpen fatigue.  I’m not entirely sure why they called up a third catcher at the moment, though.

    Chirinos also plays first base and since they sent McGuiness down and Berkman is creaky they needed a backup.
