Thought this was a somewhat noteworthy bit of news, Germano goes back to the team we got him from. History now turns 3 seperate trades into effectively Germano, Chick, and Randa for Eddie Guardado and Rheal Cormier.
Padres claimed RHP Justin Germano off waivers from the Phillies.
Germano, who was traded to the Reds in 2005 and the Phillies last season, is back with his original organization after Philadelphia failed in an attempt to slip him through waivers. He's out of options, so there's a good chance he'll be available on the wire again later this month. Germano is decent insurance for the rotation, but the Padres have better bullpen options.
