Matt LaPorta and Chone Figgins sound like future Marlins to me.
   102. JJ1986 Posted: November 20, 2012 at 11:13 PM (#4307257)
Rays add Tim Beckham, Hak-Ju Lee, Enny Romero and Felipe Rivero.
   103. JJ1986 Posted: November 20, 2012 at 11:14 PM (#4307259)
Sox maybe (unconfirmed) add Alex Wilson, Allen Webster, Steven Wright, Alex Hassan, Dan Butler and Christian Vasquez.

Red Sox DFA Danny Valencia and Zach Stewart.


Brian LaHair DFA'd. He may be going to Japan.


Has an All-Star ever been released three months later? Mike Williams was a free agent after his disastrous All-Star season (and never pitched in the big leagues again). Mark Redman was allowed to leave via FA. Mike Sharperson spent another year in LA after his All-Star season (although mostly in the minors).

Dave Nilsson went to Japan immediately after his All-Star season. But he was a FA.

Ken Harvey was released one year after his All-Star season. In that year he played 12 games for the Royals. That was his last season.

I'm guessing this is the first time it's ever happened to a HITTER. It's probably happened to one of those random middle relievers who gets chosen for no reason (Lance Carter etc).

104, 105 make it sound like All Stars aint what they used to be, or nevah was!

According to Conor Glassey of Baseball America (responding to a tweet from me), Ngoepe still has a year to go. BA should know :)


Hooray!

Thanks for checking, Mike. I feel a lot better now.

Giants add Nick Noonan, Juan Perez, Jake Dunning, Chris Heston, Edwin Escobar.
