Relievers Chad Gaudin and Edwar Ramirez were both designated for assignment in recent days. The assignment has now come: Edwar Ramirez down to AAA Sacramento and Gaudin out of town on a rail.
Between this news and the Brian Bruney DFA from the other day, it’s safe to say that the “sign ex-Yankees and put them in our bullpen” strategy from this past winner was not a winning one.
Gaudin seems like someone who could still be effective, however, so you figure that he’ll find work soon.
