Rays Claim Chad Bradford on Waivers

August 7, 2008 at 11:44 am 4 comments


The Tampa Bay Rays claimed right-handed reliever Chad Bradford on waivers Thursday and will send a player to be named to the Baltimore Orioles at a later date according to ESPN.com.

Bradford is 3-3 with a 2.34 ERA in 40.1 innings for the Orioles this season. But in those 40+ innings he only has 13 strikeouts. That shouldn’t be a huge problem because he gets a lot of groundballs and the Rays infield defense is one of the best.

I’m not sure who the Rays will give up and who they will send down. My gues would’ve been to give up Jason Hammel because he is out of options.

There is no real option to send down and they would have to surrender Hammel to waivers. Trevor Miller is another option due to J.P. Howell‘s emergence.

According to ESPN.com he signed a three-year contract with Baltimore as a free agent in 2006.

    I think they will put someone back on the DL to make room. I think this is a good move by the Rays, it gives them another look out of the PEN.

    As long as he doesn’t have to face any lefties he should be alright. Who would go on the DL?

    I believe Al Reyes is going back on the DL.

    ***Note of interest-With one more Win the rays have set a new franchise record for wins. They have already tied their highest win total of 70 wins.
