Player Added; Player Never to be Added

As we wait for the first home game to start we hear that the Bulls bullpen will be getting some help to fill the hole opened when Brandon Gomes was called up to the Rays. Adam Liberatore, a 26 year old left-handed reliever, is coming up from the Montgomery Biscuits. He appeared in 16 games for the Bulls last year with a stellar 1.29 ERA over 21 innings. Happy to have him. Stats.

On the other hand, Robinson Chirinos, a catcher we saw the year before last, and liked a lot, has been traded to the Texas Rangers. Chirinos and former Bull Steven Vogt had been designated for assignment by the Rays a week or so ago. That’s two catchers out of the Rays system in just a few days.

By the way, it’s great to hear (thanks, Rob) that that Steven Vogt has started his career as a Sacramento River Cat with a single, home run, and a strike ‘em out/throw ‘em out play.
