Sandy Rosario has been claimed off waivers yet again, going from the Cubs to the Giants in what has been a ridiculous series of moves for the 27-year-old right-hander.

Here’s the complete list and keep in mind that this has all occurred since October:

- Claimed off waivers by the Red Sox from the Marlins
- Traded from the Red Sox to the A’s.
- Claimed off waivers by the Red Sox from the A’s
- Claimed off waivers by the Cubs from the Red Sox
- Claimed off waivers by the Giants from the Cubs

And all for a 27-year-old with a 15.26 ERA in 10 big-league appearances who might be a decent middle reliever if things go well.

    Is this some kind of record?

      Bautista had the record for most times traded from in one season, I think. I believe its 5 times in one season back in the dark days of 2004. That’s the only team change record i can think of.

      I think this is different from being traded, though. It deserves its own record/award. I can’t think of a suitable name for the “claimed off waivers” award but the trophy can be a blender still in its box with well used gift wrap paper on the outside. One more time claimed off waivers and he gets the trophy and a free shirsey of his team choice at any MLB store.

      Does baseball have some sort of waiver freeze over Christmas, so that this travel weary man can at least enjoy some turkey with his family members?

    A great way to get to meet people from the front offices of MLB teams.

    Poor guy. He’s like the human version of re-gifting.

      We may have to start calling him Dizzy Rosario.

    My prediction is that the Giants eventually waive him and then manage to reclaim Eli Whiteside.

      The Rangers just signed AJ to be their catcher and will have to put someone on waivers. Will that someone be Whiteside?

    look at the bright side i bet he has alot of friends same with edwin jackson

    (Assuming he makes a MLB roster) his entrance music as he enters a game from the pen should be “Travellin’ Man.”

      Or, “I’ve Been Everywhere.”

    Seeing as good pitching is the number one predictor of a successful postseason team, I think it’s safe to say we’ll find out how good Sandy Rosario really is if the Giants stop the carousel and actually see what he’s got. If they keep him, chances are he’s not bad. If they don’t, caveat emptor. And yeah, if this sounds like me elevating the Giants’ pitching braintrust to immortal heights, well…sure seems like they’ve known, and will continue to know exactly what they’re doing.

    I’m thinking a Sandy Rosario for Mickey Storey deal may be in the works…..
