If the total return for Gorkys Hernandez was a case of Junior Mints…….i’d be okay with it.

Nah, the bluejays will pick him up…..and then DFA him 2 days later to see if they can stash him in their AAA system.

So, the the total return for Gorkys Hernandez and a 2013 Supplemental round draft pick is Gabby Sanchez. He better really hit this year.

Unless Stewart makes it through waivers and goes to AAA.
