Rich Harden and Julio Franco no longer active

New, comments

A couple of moves of note today...

The Oakland A's have put Rich Harden back on the disabled list, with more shoulder problems. He's apparently supposed to rest for a couple of weeks, and then begin rehabbing again.

And the New York Mets have designated Julio Franco for assignment...my initial thought was that this might pave the way for a Sammy Sosa trade, as the token old man/righty bench bat on the team, but apparently, the Mets are letting Franco go to bring in another ancient Hispanic once-great former Ranger, Sandy Alomar Jr.
