First Roster Move of Season

  • C Chris Gimenez designated for assignment
  • P Daniel McCutchen purchased from AAA
  • P Michael Kirkman clears waivers, outrighted to AAA [ Link ]

NOTES: That didn’t take long.  The third catcher (Chris Gimenez) has been DFA’ed to bring up some bullpen help in the form of Daniel McCutchen.  McCutchen played with Pittsburgh the last few years, and had decent numbers there, so hopefully he can do well here.  Kirkman, who seems to have run out of steam with Texas cleared waivers and went to AAA.   Gimenez probably will end up at AAA, I’d wager.
