Richard Durrett reports that Jason Botts has been optioned to AAA. No word on who is coming up to take his place, but you'd guess it is Freddy Guzman or Drew Meyer, given the paucity of position players on the 25 man roster.
I'm a little disappointed in this, although I've said for a while that if Botts wasn't going to play, he should be in AAA.
And if this means we see Brad Wilkerson and Kevin Mench regularly, then I can live with it.
But if this means that we get a steady diet of Jerry Hairston Jr. in the outfield, then this is a huge problem.
The other thing that I have to wonder...is Botts going down to get regular playing time so he can be marketed for a trade?
