The Blue Jays have activated Nolan Reimold from the DL.
Nolan got in 12 at bats with the Jays, after being picked up off waivers and before being put on the DL. In those 12 at bats he had 4 hits, with 3 doubles, 3 RBI, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. Glad to have him back, we could use the bat.
Esmil Rogers, unfortunately, gets the DFA treatment. Rogers was added to the 40-man roster last week, and brought up to the Blue Jays. He didn't ever get to pitch for us before designated again. Poor guy. I'll admit, I'd rather keep him and option Rob Rasmussen, but they don't consult me before making these moves.
Rogers cleared waivers before, so odds are he'll clear them again, unless someone saw him in Buffalo and took a liking to him.
We are back down to 7 in the bullpen. 3 lefties: Brett Cecil, Aaron Loup and Rasmussen and 4 righties: Casey Janssen, Dustin McGowan. Aaron Sanchez and Todd Redmond.
Glad to have you back Nolan. Sorry to see you go Rogers.
Update: Minor Leaguer tells me Rogers made about $15,000 for his weekend in New York, plus the MLB per diem. Though, having spent a few days in New York...the per diem won't be enough. Food doesn't come cheap there.
