Transaction/Roster Update

A couple of days ago I put out a list of Rays transactions that were up in the air. Two of those have been resolved. According to the St. Pete Times, pitcher John Meloan has been claimed by Pittsburgh and pitcher R.J. Swindle has been claimed by Cleveland. That leaves unresolved the question of catcher Michel Hernandez and infielder Joe Dillon.

In addition, The Tampa Tribune is reporting that rehabbing Rays infielder Akinori Iwamura is scheduled to report to Durham for as much as a two-week assignment beginning this Friday.


  1. Michel has been "outrighted" to the Bulls. I am not sure, but I think that means he cleared wavers and it headed back to us.

  2. Also, it looks like Dillion made it through and will be joining us also. Wonder who he will replace? Can he fill in a bullpen spot?

  3. Used the word "also" too many times there, sorry about that.
