      That could very well be the case. They might still opt to hold onto Ruiz since I think they still have 2-3 spots left on the 70-man roster. But then they already have 6 foreigners (Rasner, Jimenez, Sanchez, Speier, Kim, Ruiz). Throw in Garcia and that would make 7. The Eagles did carry 7 foreigners for about a week, and then they released Morillo to drop that back to 6.

      Still, Ruiz is the only position player on the team right now, so maybe they’ll keep both on the 70-man roster for now.

    Yeah. Sounds reasonable. I think its a really good move. He seems to be a pretty impressive Mexican League player. I doubt he can be worse than Ruiz, and Yamasaki desperately needs protection or this season is going nowhere.
