We knew that the Jason Jennings signing was going to mean someone would be dropped from the 40 man roster, but the news of who it is is a pretty big surprise, to me...
This is clearly the prelude to a trade -- given that he's a nice arm with options remaining, someone would claim him on waivers -- but it surprises me that the Rangers chose to hang on to, say, Robinson Tejeda or Nelson Cruz.
Galarraga's bounceback from a bad 2006 was one of many nice stories from the farm system this year, and there was even talk that he'd be someone who'd push Kason Gabbard for a roster spot.
I also think it is interesting that the Rangers chose to hang on to Luis Mendoza rather than Galarraga, given that Galarraga has been viewed as having the better upside.
I assume that the Rangers have talked to other clubs about a deal for Galarraga, and that they'll finalize something in the next few days.
