The Pittsburgh Pirates have added Jonathan Sanchez and Brandon Inge to the 40-man roster today. To make room, the team designated Hunter Strickland and Clint Robinson for assignment. Robinson was DFAd to make room for Inge, while Strickland was DFAd for Sanchez.

The Pirates added Strickland to the 40-man this off-season, protecting him from the Rule 5 draft. Robinson was added in an off-season trade after being DFAd by the Royals. The Pirates now have ten days to trade, waive, or release either player. It seems most likely that they’ll try to pass each player through waivers.

My guess is that the damn Rangers will pick them up, as has been their calling card lately.

INGE? Why trade for Robinson and then sign Brandon Inge? Did NH think that Inge wouldn’t be available? Where else would he be?

My guess is that both sneak through waivers.

That seems unnecessary when Charlie could’ve gone on the DL
