Oh, cool, Jake Goebbert is still around. Dennis Lin just tweeted that Goebbert cleared waivers and got outrighted to El Paso. Goebbert had been in DFA limbo for a week since getting bumped off the 40-man roster to make room for Josh Johnson.
Barring any unforeseen moves between now and the end of spring training, 2015 will be Goebbert's second season with the Chihuahuas. He split last year between three clubs; he started with Oakland's AAA team in Sacramento, headed to El Paso after being acquired in a deal for Kyle Blanks, then bounced between there and San Diego after making his major league debut. Between his three stops, he performed best in red and black.
