Get a few miles out of his arm before he hits waivers.

I’m glad Morris is staying up, he’s proved he can help this club.

They had to add Contreras to the 40-man.

To make room, they’ve optioned Jared Hughes to Triple-A.”

“There was an open spot on the 40-man roster, so no corresponding move needs to be made for Contreras.”

Huh? If there was an open space on the roster, why was Hughes sent down?
