Jhan Marinez is the corresponding move
Deunte Heath being sent down to AAA right before the All-Star break dropped the roster count down to 24, and Philip Humber is set to take his roster spot for a start on Tuesday. But that’s Tuesday.  It is presently Friday.  Philip Humber is of no use this weekend. Hence, Jhan Marinez. Marinez is yet... Read more »

Morning notes: While you were sleeping, everyone got added to the All-Star Team

Morning notes: While you were sleeping, everyone got added to the All-Star Team
As is the typical reward for finishing 2nd in the Last Man Vote, Jake Peavy has been added to the AL All-Star team as an injury replacement.  The reason for Peavy’s addition is almost a caricature of All-Star Game injury cop-outs: C.J.
