The most famous of the trio, former White Sox center fielder Brian Anderson, got let go by the Yankees today. Anderson, who had been on the DL since May 2, was released despite opening the year with a 1.17 ERA and a 9/1 K/BB ratio in 7 2/3 innings for Double-A Trenton.
One figures he’ll be picked back up once healthy
The Red Sox earlier ths week released Ryan Harvey, who was drafted with the sixth overall pick in 2003 by the Cubs (nine spots ahead of Anderson). He made the switch from the outfield to the mound with the Rockies last year, but he never actually got into a game. The Red Sox had kept him at extended spring training since the beginning of the year.
Last, and probably least, is 28-year-old left-hander Miguel Negron, who was let go by the White Sox. The one-time Blue Jays prospect had a 6.27 ERA and a 6/7 K/BB ratio in 8 2/3 innings for low Single-A Kannapolis. He was a first-round pick way back in 2000.
Apparently, the moral of the story is that only infielders and catchers make good pitchers.
