What A Week
Larry Stone reports that the M’s have placed Jose Lopez on the bereavement list, becoming the third player to be away from the team this week due to a family emergency. No word on how long he’ll be gone for, but Chris Woodward has been recalled from Tacoma and will serve as the utility infielder, while Ronny Cedeno will play second base. Woodward was not on the 40 man roster, so the M’s will have to make a move to get him on there before they can activate him. With Rob Johnson due to return today, Quiroz or Burke will have to be DFA’d anyway.
Update — Ryan Divish says it’s Silva to the 60-day DL to free up the roster spot.
