    Nah he’s with the team right now, they just aren’t announcing it yet for whatever reason. I don’t know if he’s just not on their 25 man roster for the first couple games, but he is physically present with the Royals as of right now.

    No they didn't need a 5th starter yet so they held off on adding him to the roster. It meant they have an open 40 man slot and could have an extra reliever or bench player the first week.

    By waiting until they need a 5th starter it allows the Royals to carry an extra Relief Pitcher

    Finnegan can begin again...in the minors since he has cleared waivers

    THAT has to be a wake up call for him. He has truly fallen into the pits.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I'm of mixed opinion on this. It gives him time to figure it out with a team that knows him, and has seen him at a high level. At the same time, dude probably needed a change of scenery.

    It'd be nice to see him embrace a relief role in AA or AAA and really get back to what made him a 1st round pick. I hope he does well.

    One week into minors season.... no sign of Finnegan. Not on DL that I can tell, but hasn't pitched. I wonder if he's in Arizona working on things?
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Didn't the Red's trade Alfredo Simon for Suarez? Who's laughing now on that trade. Not all trades work out.

    Probably just a paper move.
