As you may have noticed, the White Sox acquired Roberto Alomar a few days ago. To make room for him on the roster, they designated D’Angelo Jimenez for assignment… if they’re really that down on Jimenez, the Mariners should act quickly to snatch him up. He’s 25, a switch-hitter, will take a walk, can handle shortstop adequately, and would be an infinitely superior player to have on the roster than Wee Willie Bloomquist. Long-term, Jimenez would be a nice guy to have around as well.
