Yes, there has been another roster move. No, you probably won't care about this one.
For those who did not know who he is (most of you), he was someone the Blue Jays picked up on the waiver wire from the New York Mets 4 days ago:
Blue Jays claim RHP Chris Schwinden on waivers from Mets. RHP Daniel Farquhar designated to make room on 40. Schwinden to Vegas.— Blue Jays-Official(@BlueJays) June 2, 2012
Chris pitched in 9 games for the Buffalo Bisons (AAA-IL) and 3 games for the Mets before the Jays' waiver claim. With the Las Vegas 51s (AAA-PCL), he started one game, pitching 3 innings of 8-hit, 7-run ball against the Reno Aces on Sunday (Daniel Bard was not the only one to have a bad day). The Indians have mercifully removed him from the pitching hell that is the Pacific Coast League and he will probably play for the AAA Columbus Clippers of the International League.
Folks who know German may appreciate the story headline.
