Thanks. I'm assuming Tampa would have to keep him on the 25 man as well. With that in mind I'm going to make the bold prediction that he'll clear waivers!


No, if he goes back to Tampa they do not have to add him to the 25 man roster...they can put him anywhere in the minor leagues. He does, I believe, have to be added to the 40 man though.

Pirates are looking to set up a trade for Meek with the Rays. Looking for a cash transaction later on this week. Tampa seems agreeable to at least listen.

In today's P-G.

Important piece of the puzzle I was missing there, thanks BBF. I recant my previous post, unless a trade is worked out with Tampa, Meek is a gonner.

I'd take Burnett over Meek or Osaria any day.

P-G reports Burnett hitting 93 on the Indy gun. I've heard of guys getting stronger with more velocity post-Tommy John. Could this be the case now?

I hope that's the case. I really liked what I saw in Burnett when he came up as a rookie, but I don't remember him throwing 93. I seem to remember him topping out around 90 or 91. Can anyone remember that for sure?

Can't argue with that one, but as mentioned earlier, I think I'd have kept Meek over Osoria. We may be slightly better DFAing Meek in the short term, but long term we probably hurt ourselves. At least Meek has a ceiling, Osoria has been bumping his head off of his for a few years now.

Does that mean his fastball sits at that range? Because if all he can do is touch 93 without regularly reaching it, I'm not sure it says anything.

It says that he can reach 93 mph.

You know, like with a 1-2 count and a runner at third, one out.

That clearly beats topping out at 88 mph.

Sigh, rough debut for Burnett. Anyone have any faith in this guy?
