Breslow Let Go, Whitesell Sent Down

Craig Breslow was claimed off waivers by the Oakland Athletics yesterday, and Aaron Poreda of the White Sox was almost traded to the Padres in a package deal for Jake Peavy.

Josh Whitesell was sent down to AAA Reno. He was 3-26 with 1 double and 5 BBs. Keep in mind that it was only 26 ABs, so it's a small sample size. Personally, I believe this was just a hiccup. Rest assured. He'll be back.

Ryan Braun was 2-4 with 1 triple, 1 run scored, and 1 RBI against the Astros. He's hitting .326. His OBP is .451.

Kevin Youkilis was 1-3 with 1 BB, 1 run scored, and 1 RBI against the Blue Jays.

Gabe Kapler was 1-3 with 1 double, 1 run scored, and 1 RBI against Breslow's new team.

Ian Kinsler was 1-5 against the Tigers. He swiped his 10th bag of the season.

I thought Breslow only had the one bad outing. Boy, they gave up on him quickly! Whitesell looks good. He'll be back.
