Called up Bryan Morris (who is out of options for 2013), Chase D'arnaud, and Henricus van den Hurk. To make room for Rick they DFA'd Evan Meek, what a sorry end to what looked like a promising career for us.

Definitely need D'Arnaud up here. He's easily the best baserunner we have.

Meek's AAA numbers were pretty good. I'm guessing he can't get back to the mid nineties like he used to, or they wouldn't have cut him. In the low nineties he is ordinary.

Wonder if the Dutchman will get some starts?

OK, I consider myself a pretty well-informed Bucco fan, but I have no idea who Henricus van den Hurk is. Anyone enlighten me before I have to google him?

Been back and forth to the minors since 2007. 46 MLB appearances, 8-10, 5.97 ERA. I'd say file this guy under R for "Reclamation project".

I believe he was the king of Holland during the first World War, but had to abdicate the throne after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor. ;) :D

I should have read this thread before tonight's marathon vs the Reds. No one else knew who he was either. SI GameFlash showed him in an Orioles cap and ESPN's GameCast said he was a Cleveland Indian.
