On Wednesday, Jose Guillen said that the Royals were, fundamentally speaking, “one of the worst teams in all of
baseball.” He also said that “sometimes you want to just punch them [meaning his teammates], but you can’t do that
because they’re your teammates. Respect for the game has been
lost. That pisses me off.”
You’d think that airing that kind of stuff in public would earn Guillen a trip to the doghouse, but apparently not. Dayton Moore loves it:
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
