WEDNESDAY: Botts wants out of Texas; he'd like a fresh start with another team. GM Jon Daniels will attempt to find a taker, but otherwise Botts will have to go to Triple A.
TUESDAY: The Rangers have given up on Jason Botts, designating him for assignment. Botts, 27, played first base and various other roles in 15 games for the Rangers this year.
I can see him passing through waivers unclaimed. Botts may have earned the dreaded Quad-A label. He's failed to produce in 282 big league ABs but has raked Triple A pitching.
I was aware he was out of options. The thing is if its really going to be as hard as they make it seem to get rid of him like they want he should pass through waivers easily. regardless worst case we make it one of the player to be named later or future cash consideration type deals and end the end send the rangers $1 like the reds recieved for LaRue. So the worst case scenario is the reds recieve him for $1 and some other team claims him off waivers.
