A few quick notes about former Yankees that are now on other teams trying to do things still. Some have succeeded, some have not, but that's the game. It's the hardest thing in the world to get to the Major Leagues and stay there because there is always someone better. Bottom line, I like to keep you in the loop so you know about it. That's what we do here.
Mark Prior: Yesterday it was reported that Mark Prior was released from the Reds. You can read about it HERE. According to Yahoo Sports, "...Prior went to spring training on a minor league contract. He had a 4.66 ERA in seven relief appearances for Triple-A Louisville, but last pitched April 21 because of a right shoulder strain..."
I wonder if this is the end for Prior who has been trying to come back for a few years now, only to continue to become injured. After a while you really have to put things in perspective. Maybe this is a sign that it's over... or maybe next year he'll latch onto a new team and try again.
Eric Chavez: The Arizona Diamondbacks reinstated Eric Chavez from the disabled list...(Read HERE.) In order to do that they have to move someone. Who was that someone? Look below:
Eric Hinske: Yeah, that's right, the D-backs designated Hinske for assignment. You can read about that on AZ Snake Pit (HERE). They write that the Backs: "...designated infielder Eric Hinske for assignment, according to D-backs' Executive Vice President & General Manager Kevin Towers."
That's it, that's all I got... for now.
