Saul Rivera to AZ - Saves Vulture?

Postby dsdonaghy » Mon May 17, 2010 12:17 pm

PHOENIX (AP)—The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired right-handed reliever Saul Rivera(notes) from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for cash considerations.

Rivera was 2-0 with four saves and a 0.53 ERA during 15 relief appearances for Triple-A Columbus. He was signed by the Indians to a minor league contract on Dec. 21.

Rivera has played part of 13 seasons professionally, including four seasons with the Washington Nationals from 2006-09.

The Diamondbacks on Monday also released right-hander Bob Howry(notes). The 36-year-old Howry went 1-0 with a 10.67 ERA in 14 relief appearances for Arizona this season.

Arizona has by far the worst bullpen statistically in the major leagues.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
