Granadillo (see main list) has returned to the Red Sox organization. Val Pascucci went to Philadelphia. Bobby Scales to the Cubs.
Rick Asadoorian and Brian Shackleford to the Dodgers, as was rumored or reported. LHR Charlie Manning, once traded to the Reds for Gabe White and then back to the Yankees, was signed by (surprise!!) Washington.
Cincinnati, of course, inked RHP Jim Brower
and re-upped RHS Tom Shearn
and C Alvin Colina
. C Chris Kroski
, who hit well in High-A Sarasota last season (albeit at age 25), was also brought back.
So between Jon Adkins, Justin Lehr, Shearn, Brower, Brad Salmon (resigned to a minor-league deal) and Justin James, that's half of a not-terrible-but-not-great AAA pitching staff. I really hope Josh Roenicke, Pedro Viola, et al. can take a step forward to give the Bats' bullpen options some big-league upside.
