Game 9, Mariners at Indians
4:05. RHP Gil Mech v RHP Paul Byrd.
Lawton is off the restricted list after his 10-day suspension. Time went fast, blah blah blah. This set off a couple of weird moves: Jeff Harris was optioned to Tacoma, Guillermo Quiroz was taken off the roster via designation for assignment, and Rene Rivera was recalled.
I’m as baffled as you are. Why did Quiroz got the boot? It was a nice little pickup. Did he turn out to have personality issues or something?
And I’m a little surprised that they’re moving off the extra-beefy bullpen, given that the starters are getting rocked.
