This morning, we wondered how the 25-man roster would come together, if Seth Rosin would stick with the Dodgers, and where exactly Javy Guerra would end up. Now we know, though I can’t say I expected to find out about both at the same time:
Today, Seth Rosin was claimed off waivers by Texas and Javy Guerra was claimed off waivers by the White Sox: http://t.co/GBfy2bpTMT

First things, first: Guerra, who had appeared in 101 games over three years for the Dodgers, somehow saving 21 games his rookie season. (After which, though I can’t find the link right now, I begged the team to trade him while his value was highest, figuring he’d never again come near a season like that. And here we are.) I have to say, while no one batted an eye when he was DFA’d 10 days ago, I am a bit surprised that this ended with a simple waiver claim, rather than a trade for even some sort of menial minor league piece. Not that it really matters, I suppose.
