Return of Esteban
Wednesday, June 4, 2008
Prior to today’s game, we signed Esteban Loaiza and optioned Ehren Wassermann to Class AAA Charlotte.
Loaiza is in uniform and available for tonight’s game.
KW told the media that Loaiza fills two roles, 1. he will serve as a long man out of the bullpen allowing Ozzie and Don Cooper to use Nick Masset later in games when Octavio Dotel and Scott Linebrink may not be available, and 2. he gives us more depth and security for the rotation should a need arise over the course of the season.
