Cashman: “I have an interest in both Freddy and Bartolo”

Brian Cashman said today that he is interested in re-signing both Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia. From ESPN New York:

“I have an interest in both Freddy and Bartolo. Those guys all did a good job for us, a really good job.”

Makes sense. Particularly Garcia who it is not quite as unreasonable to assume can do what he did in 2011 in 2012.  Colon’s surprising year doesn’t strike me as potentially replicable, though I suppose it could happen.

The Brewers announced on Tuesday that reliever Boone Logan has been designated for assignment and starter Freddy Peralta has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Peralta will start on Tuesday evening against the Pirates, opposite Jameson Taillon at PNC Park.

Logan, 33, has struggled this season, serving up seven runs on 15 hits and 10 walks with 14 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. The lefty inked a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Brewers in January, but he missed the first six weeks of the season with a triceps injury.

Peralta, 22, made his major league debut last month, making a stellar start against the Rockies at Coors Field. He struck out 13 batters over 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He made another, less successful start against the Twins before heading back to the minors. With Colorado Springs, Peralta owns a 2.75 ERA with 84 strikeouts and 27 walks over 59 innings.
