Jose Contreras’ injury and our bullpen logging eight innings tonight brought about a flurry of moves postgame.
Josh Fields was optioned to Class AAA Charlotte and Boone Logan will be optioned tomorrow before the game. We then acquired LH reliever Horacio Ramirez (good sinker, good numbers) from KC in exchange for minor league outfielder Paulo Orlando, who was at Class A Winston-Salem.
Tomorrow before the game, we will bring two other players up and place Jose on the disabled list, giving us 25 players by 1:05 pm.
And as for Livan Hernandez …
