probably to be backup catcher since he's out of options. Glad to see Rivera can go back to AAA. No word on 40m roster move yet.
Rotoworld: Even though Gregg Zaun's going on the DL, the Jays chose not to keep the 24-year-old Quiroz, suggesting that they had lost all faith in his ability to play in the majors. We like the pickup for Seattle. Quiroz has more offensive potential than Rene Rivera, and he's hardly a liability defensively. He's not going to be a long-term regular for the Mariners, who have Kenji Johjima for three years and Jeff Clement on the way, but he could spend the year as a backup and then become trade bait.
