The Mariners have a minor league deal with catcher Pedro Severino, who recently opted out of a minor league assignment with the Padres. The Diamondbacks just released Jandel Gustave. He has an ERA of 16.43 at the Triple-A level this year. Yikes! Miguel Andujar accepted his outright assignment from the Pirates. The Mets woes continue. Outfielder Tim Locastro will undergo thumb surgery. Dustin May is now officially on the 60 day IL. Drew Pomeranz of the Padres just underwent clean up surgery in his elbow.
Corey Kluber is struggling so the Red Sox moved him to the bullpen. Happy birthday Bartolo Colon! The Reds just designated Silvino Bracho for assignment. I still think that name sounds like a character in a gangster movie. The Rays designated Zach Burdi for assignment. In other Burdi news, Nick Burdi of the Cubs just underwent an emergency appendectomy.
