In another injury related roster move, (unfortunately relegated to be a) backup OF Pat Burrell has been placed on the disabled list with a bone spur in his foot. Catcher Hector Sanchez’s contract has been purchased from AAA Fresno.
No corresponding move has been made to make room for Sanchez on the 40-man. It is possible that Mark DeRosa and his flopping tendon are (finally) on the 60-day disabled list.
Three catchers on one team is, indeed, a bit ridiculous. As is the fact that it is possible that Sanchez is being rushed. While there is probably a reason for this promotion, it isn’t evident.
