40-man Roster Additions

Texas added pitchers THOMAS DIAMOND and MATT HARRISON, catcher MAX RAMIREZ, outfielder BRANDON BOGGS to the 40-man roster.

No surprises. Teams might sniff reliever Jesse Ingram, utlility infielder Tug Hulett, or perhaps 1B Nate Gold, but I doubt anyone will take the bait.

For a list of Rule-5 eligibles, look up.

Reviewing the Rundown archives, I see that four years ago, Texas added pitchers EDWIN MORENO and NICK REGILIO, 1B ADRIAN GONZALEZ, and 2B JASON BOURGEOIS. That didn’t work out so well.

Texas also designated outfielder VICTOR DIAZ for assignment.

Texas appears to think less of Diaz than Freddy Guzman or Nick Gorneault. Ouch. I don’t know about that, but, sad to say, his loss won’t affect the team’s short or long-term outlook.

The 40-man is full.
