Brad Penny and Cory Wade have been placed on the DL and taking their places will be Eric Stults and new member of the 40 man Tanyon Sturtze. The 37 year old Sturtze has thrown 10 big league innings since 2005 and was unimpressive for Jacksonville and Las Vegas this year. In 51.1 innings Sturtze struck out 39, walked 18 and allowed six home runs.
When you give up fringe prospect after fringe prospect that you'll "never miss" in random deals, you have to turn to Tanyon Sturtze down the stretch. So it goes.
