San Diego Padres Claimed pitcher Jason Anderson off waivers from the New York Yankees; designated Kenny Baugh for assignment.
Does anyone have any information on Baugh? Would he be worth adding to our 40 man roster?

Hopefully WayneK's done searching for diamonds in the dumpster behind Wal-Mart.

I view this as a question of relative value. Is there someone currently on the 40 man roster, especially a pitcher, who is less likely to benefit the club than Baugh? I don't know enough to speak intelligently on Baugh, but I like the few numbers I see posted above. After Hancock, Hudson, Nelson, and Bong were shown to be held in low regard by the rest of the league (i.e., they cleared waivers), I wonder how many other 40 man members could be moved off the roster in place of better talent.

Here's some Rotoworld information on Kenny Baugh. I don't know who I'd DFA from the Reds' 40 man to pick up Baugh, but I'd almost prefer this guy over Germano given what I see from him last year in AAA.


Padres designated RHP Kenny Baugh for assignment.
The Padres gave up a relief prospect to acquire Baugh from the Tigers when they were going to designate him for assignment a couple of months ago. There's a good chance that he'll clear waivers, and if it happens, he'll be invited to camp to compete for a job in middle relief.

He can pitch at a decent level (AAA) I see no reason at all, for the Reds not to swoop in a test him out. Who do we actually lose if we add him? Womack? its a gamble with maybe a very benificial return.
