Steve Pearce "Traded" To Baltimore
Steve Pearce had an opt out clause in his contract that if we was not called up to the Yankees major league team and added to their 25 man active roster that he could go to another team. Baltimore wanted Pearce and we did not have a spot for him so he was sent there. He was easily our best minor league hitter, although he should have been given his age and former MLB experience, but with Russell Branyan now healthy and making his way back up to AAA I think this was more of a roster move and clearing a space then anything. Good luck Mr. Pearce!
