Pirates close to acquiring Joakim Soria from Tigers

Jon Heyman says the deal is done, though I haven’t seen any sort of return from the Pirates mentioned yet. You can check out MLBTR for the full reporting tree. My hunch is that the Pirates won’t be giving up much here; Soria’s a rental and he would be the Pirates’ third-best reliever at the absolute best. He strengthens the bullpen, of course, but I doubt the Pirates would...

Reading Jeff Sullivan to Arquimedes Caminero

First, Jeff Sullivan on Arquimedes Caminero: If you just look at the .gifs quickly, they look similar. They are similar — nothing here was overhauled. But, in 2015, Caminero has a higher leg lift, and as his leg comes up, he’s more vertical, eliminating last year’s slight hunch. It also appears he’s reduced his drop […]

Ray Searage Did It Again

You had, probably, heard of Arquimedes Caminero before. This is because his full name is Arquimedes Euclides Caminero, and that speaks for itself. His existence as a baseballer was something of a curiosity, but that was more or less the extent of it. However much you knew about Caminero, you probably knew next to nothing […]

News and notes

Following the Steve Lombardozzi deal the other day, the Pirates made a few other minor trades later in the week: They acquired pitcher Arquimedes Caminero from the Marlins for cash. Caminero has a heck of a name, but he isn’t likely to make the squad – although he could force his way into the mix for the last bullpen spot since he is out of options. He throws hard and has appeared...

No fanfare, but a no-hitter just the same for Marlins in Panama

JUPITER, Fla. -- When Marlins reliever Arquimedes Caminero struck out Adonis Garcia Saturday night in an exhibition against the New York Yankees, there was no jubilant celebration on the mound. Catcher Kyle Skipworth didn't jump into Caminero's arms. Teammates walked out of the dugout for customary handshakes. Though horns, whistles and drums blared like lively World Baseball Classic...
