How is this guy recalled if he's never actually gotten "the call"?

Juan Uribe on the DL

Any link? Is this retroactive for the last few days?

Not going to do Chris any good riding the pine in Chicago for 2 weeks. I'm pretty sure Alexei has the starting 2B to lose now.

Wise has played well in Charlotte, but he's on the wrong side of 30; not much of a future in the Majors.

I'm not. Alexi has played well in the opportunity that he's been given and Ozzie feels comfortable with Pablo as the backup at 2B.

Actually you're right that I got it wrong, because Wise wasn't on the 40-man.

But Egbert could have been called up, and he would be recalled because he was on the 40-man. :shrug:

Well thats true but I would like to see him play some up here and spell Alexei with a day off soon cause he's been playing like 5 games in a row and Could Getz play short and possibly give OC a day off?

Kenny, call up Chris Getz. Call up Chris Getz. Make Reinsdorf lower ticket prices. Call up Chris Getz.

Old or not those are good #'s. I'm surprised Owens didn't get a call though if they were going to bring up an OF. Less controversy this way though i guess. And again, it keeps Owens from riding pine I guess.

Owens is struggling right now. Him and Josh Fields need to step up their play

It could just be because Jerry Owens isn't very good at playing baseball.

This is an odd move. Pablo is the only guy on the team to backup 3B, SS and 2B now. How soon until Richar gets to rehabbing and how many more games will Uribe miss?

For rookies, they always say either called up or recalled from AAA, AA, etc. I just don't understand it being recalled if the guy has never been up to the majors before.

Makes sense. It would just take a guy like Getz out of his groove since he would certainly be riding the pine. With Wise, Ozzie doesn't have to worry about getting him a fair shot, and he can just sit at the end of the bench with a team that is hot. Not too much to analyze with this move.

Plus it gives Ozzie another guy to take at bats away from BA. :redneck

This is an odd move. Pablo is the only guy on the team to backup 3B, SS and 2B now.

Exactly what I was thinking. We have only 1 guy that can play the infield on the bench. I think that could restrict some pinch runner/hitter moves oz would want to make.

Hey I rememeber JD played the infield in Oakland a few years back (Well I believe he did) so were set. :cool:

If OC requires his rare rest, we would just move Lexi over to SS and plug in Pablo at 2b, so all he has to do is cover 2b and 3b.

I know it's a long shot, but Ramirez has adjusted well with steady at bats. I would love to see him win the 2B job and become our leadoff guy,

Finally some news regarding Richar.

On the latest ESPN 1000 update, it was mentioned that Richar was sent to Charlotte to begin a rehab assignment as well as the news about Uribe and Wise.

He's not exactly lighting it up in Charlotte this year:

BA= .229; OBP=.302; SLG=.285; 28 k's/15 BB's (144 ABs); 4GIDP; 5 doubles, one home run, no triples, 9 RBI's.

Sox had 1 backup infielder and 1 backup outfielder. Since Ozzie won't give Cabrera so much as a day off (the .275 OBP leadoff hitter has played in every game), I guess they need the backup outfielder more than a backup infielder. This also gives Ozzie an alternative to Anderson.
I thought they had Ramirez pegged for SS. Cabrera and Uribe are ridiculously over-priced, so we'll need a SS next year (and save some signficant payroll as well).

Uribe was retroactive to May 16th so assuming he's OK, he's eligible to come off next week,June 1st.

The Sox can get by without him for basically a week.

Richar is batting 3rd for Charlotte. Getz is at SS.

It makes sense to DL Juan Uribe, given how cold it has been. Rushing him back could have been detrimental.

And in two weeks it will make even more sense to just flat cut him when Richar is ready to come up. Then they can work on trading Cabrera and move Ramirez back to SS where he belongs.

I wonder if Brad Eldred was considered at all....

Either way, we now have a LH bat for the bench. Hopefully we can ride his hotness.

They probably wanted a lefty stick to pinch hit for Ramirez and Anderson.

Haha yeah. I just edited my post after I went to the MILB website to confirm Wise was a lefty.

I think that's correct.

And since Swisher is going to be an infielder this weekend, it doesn't hurt to have another backup outfielder around.

Konerko is definitely unavailable tonight and tomorrow, and I wouldn't be surprised if he misses the whole weekend.

I posted this the other day in another thread:

"Just a thought, but if the Sox do bring up a guy to bat leadoff, why wouldn't it be Dewayne Wise, instead of Jerry Owens?
I know that he's 30, but look at what he's doing. He has a better skill set than Owens, and he has 12 stolen bases in 17 attempts. He's leading the International League in hitting, and his OPS is 1.069.
He played all 3 Major sports in High School, so he must be a good athlete, and maybe he's just a late bloomer.
What do you think?
Has anyone ever seen him?

Now he has a 4 for 4 night. He's leading the League!!!
I think the Sox should give him a try at leadoff. Why not put Konerko on the DL until that bone bruise heals. Swisher moves to first, and Wise plays center for a while."

It only makes sense to give him a chance. He has speed, and that is what they are looking for. It's a shame that he doesn't play Second, but if they can get him in the lineup somewhere, it's worth a try.

I don't think Wise is a better player than Anderson. I think Konerko will be back early part of next week, and in the meantime BA can hold down that spot in the lineup.

Just use Wise off the bench. His speed and left-handed bat might be able to help us in certain situations.

This guy's had a nice start in AAA. If he can hit, a bat's always nice to have. ONce in a while, guys like him will throw out a freak year.

You want to go the rest of the year with Richar at 2nd and Ramirez at ss?( With Ozuna as the replacement for both ss and 2nd?) Are you folding up the tent for this year already? btw: You realize that Cabrera will only get you a bag of balls or some sort of prospects ,being in his FA year?

We don't have the organizational depth to handle many injuries this year. Owens is hitting like crap, Fields is banged up and striking out at a pretty alarming rate, Eldred is a journeyman 1B....other than Getz....there's not much help available in the farm system.
