September Callups / Moves

Well, here’s the usual gaggle of rookie callups, broken veterans who will get like two at bats all month, you know the drill.  It’s the September 1st pile of roster moves.  Here goes:

  • DH Lance Berkman activated from DL
  • P Cory Burns recalled from AAA
  • C Robinson Chirinos recalled from AAA
  • P Nick Tepesch activated from DL
  • CF Jim Adduci purchased from AAA
  • P Neftali Feliz activated from DL
  • P Michael Kirkman activated from DL
  • CF Joe Benson designated for assignment
  • P Justin Miller released [ Link ]

NOTES:  Quite a few guys coming off the DL in this group.  Nothing really a surprise. Extra catcher as a backup, some extra bullpen help.   Feliz finally takes the field in 2013…  The biggest surprise was the purchasing of Jim Adduci.   He’s 28, and has been bouncing around the minors for awhile.  Be nice to see the kid get a shot. Hopefully he can turn it into more than just a September callup and done.
