    Today we saw an unusual amount of players claimed off waivers. They can probably best be described as 40-man roster stocking stuffers. Here’s a quick look at the busy day of transactions: The Blue Jays claimed third baseman Brent Morel off waivers from the White Sox Morel hit 10 homers in 126 games with the…

    Yan Gomes, the only major leaguer Brazil has ever produced, opted out of the World Baseball Classic to help his chances of making the Indians. He won’t.

    We’ll hear plenty about players opting out of the World Baseball Classic over the next couple of months. How about a couple of guys that are in: Minnesota’s Joe Mauer and the Mets’ David Wright. The Mauer commitment makes it less of a big deal now if Buster Posey decides not to play for Team…

    For the second time this season the Twins have turned to their reigning minor league pitcher of the year Liam Hendriks in the starting rotation, been disappointing by the results, and sent the 23-year-old right-hander back to Triple-A.

    Twins rookie Liam Hendriks had another rough start yesterday, allowing six runs in five innings against the Pirates to fall to 0-6 with a 6.84 ERA in 10 career starts.
