Red Sox - Claimed Denker

Boston Red Sox - Claimed IF Travis Denker off waivers from the San Diego Padres

The Red Sox picked up Denker mainly to add to some backup infielder depth that has been tested with Jed Lowrie and Julio Lugo being on the DL early on.  The issues with Lowrie and Lugo aren’t expected to be worries past the short-term, so Denker may end up with another organization in the next couple of months.  Denker’s not a bad guy to have around, but his usefulness to the Red Sox is limited at the moment with Gil Velazquez and Nick Green having played shortstop regularly.

Do I have this right?

The Padres gave this guy a 40-man roster spot, kept him there through the opening of the season, let him play one game (of minor-league ball?) then put him on waivers?

Yes, but I believe he was bumped to make room for Chad Gaudin.

Both of you guys are correct.

####### lowrie. he should have had surgery a year ago.

The Red Sox taking the castoffs of a powerful, first-place team. Not surprising.

Padres in first? If you think that's unexpected, try the AL if season ended today:

East champs: Orioles
Central: Royals
West: Mariners

I would be willing to accept a year with no Angels in the playoffs if it meant I got to see 4 worst to first turnarounds.

Speaking of the Sox, no game chatter today?

Luis Perdomo, actually.

The issues with Lowrie and Lugo aren't expected to be worries past the short-term

A wrist problem that has lingered for over 8 months including the offseason should be expected to be a long term worry.

You're just a Nervous Nelly, I don't see Andy LaRoche having any problems.
