Sometimes they send guys to the AFL to help make that decision.
Sox also lost Ricardo Nanita (WAS), Robert Valido (BAL), and Jason Rice (BOS) in the AAA phase.
Got'cha. Well at least those other guys didn't seem like anything special. Did we choose anyone in the AAA phase? I'm refreshing the MLB page, but it's now showing those results yet. The guy we got last year, Santo Luis, did pretty damn well. Off the top of my head, as a reliever, he struck out something like 110 guys in 80 something innings.
