It is it a foregone conclusion that Rivera will get claimed if we release him to get him down to AAA? The guy cannot hit, does not have a great arm but, apparently, calls a very good game. I guess Black and Balsley see the value but given our anemic offense and Blanks tearing it up in AAA, it grates on me. OK, yes, Blanks is one of our fringe guys I really, really pull for.
Side note, I did not know Maybin was doing a rehab assignment already. His injury in early March was tossed around as "2-3 months". This is like 6 weeks. That's good. His .420 OPS is not encouraging but not many PA's.
