The headline says it all. The Mariners have opted to call up journeyman minor leaguer Guillermo Quiroz, a onetime top prospect with Toronto, from Class AA to fill the void left by Kenji Johjima’s injury. Johjima goes to the 15-day DL and pitcher Cesar Jimenez is transferred to the 60-day DL.
Yeah, Jimenez is in worse shape than we thought.
This is clearly being done to spare Adam Moore from a rushed call-up. Quiroz has major league experience and was recently brought back for his second stint with Seattle’s organization. Another Venezuelan for the growing contingent as well.
