Langerhans Goes Away
The M’s made it official this morning, designating Ryan Langerhans for assignment to make room for Mike Wilson on the roster. We figured it was either Bradley or Langerhans, and the team opted to keep Milton for now. That said, the clock on his tenure in Seattle is ticking, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Milton was the one to go when Gutierrez returns from the DL.
It will be interesting to see how the M’s handle CF until that happens, however. Wilson and Bradley are both DHs, so the team now really only has two capable defensive outfielders on the roster, and one of them can’t hit. You can’t really pinch hit for Saunders now, and if he gets hurt, I’d imagine Ichiro would have to slide over to center. I doubt this alignment lasts very long, honestly.
