    Graffanino waived

    According to this tidbit from yahoo sports.

    Mar 27 The Boston Globe's Gordon Edes reports the Boston Red Sox placed 2B Tony Graffanino on waivers.

    An available scrappy middle infielder?

    How long until he is a Red? 12 hours? 24?

    I heard the Royals do, as a back-up. Disappointing. He's way better than a back-up.

    On Rotoworld now:
    Royals claimed infielder Tony Graffanino off waivers from the Red Sox.
    So much for Esteban German as our big AL-only sleeper. Graffanino will get nearly all of the at-bats that don't go to Royals' regular infielders. He should start in place of Doug Mientkiewicz or Mark Teahen against left-handers and get in a game per week at second base in place of the injury-prone Mark Grudzielanek. He'll have a little value in fantasy leagues. Mar. 28 - 2:42 pm et

    Rats as the Reds plan to corner the market on backup MIF types goes down the drain. Of all the bad luck.

    Maybe they can trade him to another contender at the deadline again. At least he's getting his full salary instead of how much he might have wound up with if he'd been released and signed a new deal as a free agent, which I guess is what the Mets were waiting for. I don't really get the Royals spending $2 million on a back up.
