Sandy Rosario is on the move again!

When last we checked in with right-hander Sandy Rosario two days ago he’d been reclaimed off waivers by the Red Sox, who’d traded him to the A’s on November 28.

Well, his latest Red Sox stint lasted all of 48 hours, because they designated Rosario for assignment and he was claimed off waivers by the Cubs.

So, to recap: Rosario was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox from the Marlins in October, traded from the Red Sox to the A’s on November 28, claimed off waivers by the Red Sox from the A’s earlier this week, and now claimed off waivers by the Cubs from the Red Sox today.

I’m really hoping that the Cubs designate him for assignment tomorrow and either the Marlins or A’s reclaim him off waivers. And on and on and on, until either the season starts or Rosario is admitted into a mental hospital while carrying a duffel bag bursting with different teams’ hats.

    hes gonna get waived by every team in the majors only to end up on the WS winning Huston astor’s while batter over 400 and hitting 87 HR’s

      That would be something for a pitcher to do.

    I’m pretty sure Rosario is enjoying the off-season while on the phone with his agent: “Call me when the carousel stops spinning so I know where to report to in ST”.

    Are you using the Facebook Check-in to track him?

    I was told that a Mystery Team has entered the mix for Rosario. You can trust me. This is Ken Rosenthal posting from my official WordPress account.

    Seriously, why do teams do this?

      An inexpensive to build major league ready organizational depth. You put the player on waivers and hope that any other interested team has a full roster and doesn’t want to waive one of their own.

    Guess they need the roster spot for Dempster.

    Don’t put down any deposits on apartments, Sandy.
