Transaction of the day
8/19: Sent C Wiki Gonzalez outright to Triple-A Tacoma.
But they called up Ojeda on the 15th, so technically.. they had three catchers there for a while? It’s also curious that this move was essentially announced a couple days ago but didn’t go through until today — I can see where you’d do that for (say) Felix, having him join the team ahead of a scheduled start and waiting to formally call him up (though… wait, isn’t that also illegal, to have a guy in uniform and not on the roster in the dugout? I think it is) because it saves you a 25-man roster spot, but this is odd.
Updating: so Wiki was optioned to Tacoma on the 15th, when they called up Ojeda, and I have a blind spot for the MLB.com transaction page or something because I missed that.
Outrighting will clear a spot on the 40m, though what the team does with this is uncertain.
