Or… maybe you’ll clear waivers and we’ll know ye again. But with Anthony Gose almost certainly slated to start the year in centre for Las Vegas, I wouldn’t bet on it.
Either way, for the moment, Darin Mastroianni has been designated for assignment by the Jays, according to a tweet from Mike Cormack of Sportsnet (and maybe someone sooner, I don’t know), in order to clear a room on the 40-man roster for Francisco Cordero, who’s signing has been officially announced by the club.
Mastroianni, you’ll recall, started a game in mid-August for the Jays, getting the call after Colby Rasmus got hurt, despite OPSing just .747 in the beer league they call the PCL.
Cordero, of course, comes with a host of question marks regarding his declining stuff, but he’s got at least one high profile backer, as Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweets, that he’s the “biggest bargain of winter. Good job, AA.”
So… there’s that.
