I don't get DFAing him.  Doesn't he have options? Pounders is still on the 40 man, seems like he would be better choice to DFA.

 

Maybe going full retard on the bases did it.

Considering he hadn't been in the majors ever before, I would think he had options.  They probably needed his 40 man spot since bailey was on the 60 day dl

Anyone pick him up yet?

 

Not yet!

However, you will be happy to know that no other team in the MLB placed a claim on Shane Robinson and we were able to get him quickly back in our organization!!!! Great job EPPY!!! We dodged a bullet there!

So release Pounders no one is going to pick him up.

Ok it makes sense now.  You would think this would be brought up during union negotiations, but maybe they don't care.  You would think a fringe player would get an additional option or two with a new club.  It seems that it really hurts a fringe player.

I remember a pitcher that the Angels signed that hadn't played in several years a few years back. He had one option left.  After that year, they lost him when he the Angels tried to send him down (claimed by another club).  If I remember correctly his career ended after that year.  With an additional option he might have been able to go the majors a couple more times.
