Peguero sent to AAA, Carp called up.


The headline says it all. I know that most of us have been annoyed watching him strike out at an alarming rate (not to mention his swings at really bad pitches) for some time; it looks like Carlos Peguero finally annoyed the right people to get his option paperwork filed.

Mike Carp is the obvious choice to come up and fill his spot. Carp isn’t a great player, but he’s a more developed hitter than Peguero is, so this should be an improvement. You have to wonder why this took so long.  Wedge also said that Carp will actually get playing time this time around.
