Royals claim INF Tug Hulett and more

Royals claimed INF Tug Hulett on waivers from the M's earlier today, I had a feeling they might. Hulett, will turn 26 in 9 days on February 28 is 5'10" and 185 lbs.

"He gives us some depth," general manager Dayton Moore said. "He can play second, third and a little short. And he's got two options left.

The Royals should be familiar with Tug as he made his MLB debut July 12th of last year against Kc going 1-3. And in total he played in 30 games had 49 AB's, 1 HR, 2 RBI, and a .224 AVG. His milb numbers
Hulett is expected to join the Royals in time for Friday’s workout.

To clear space on the 40-man roster the Royals DFA'd lefty reliever Neal Musser .
Musser 27. Musser had a good rookie year in 07 appearing in 17 games and posting a 4.38 ERA and was seemingly improving until breaking his hand in a temper tantrum after a bad outing.
The organisation never really seemed to consider him as highly anymore after that. He pitched in one game last year a 1,2,3 inning, with a BB throw ed in there.

Finally arrived in camp today and as Mellinger put it "If the boss is trying to replace you, you probably want to show up on time". Callaspo is full of poetical but he seems like he is going to be one of those who might not have there head on his shoulders solidly. And they never seem to pan out, even when they do.

Hudson according to the KC Star
The Royals remain interested in Hudson but see little chance of clearing sufficient payroll to make a viable offer. Hudson appears to be leaning toward signing with the Dodgers.

Dayton you said so yourself above Tug gives you depth !!!! Make it happen !!

Indians DFA Andy Marte
The Tribe designated one-time top prospect Andy Marte (who is out of options) for assignment. Is he worth a shot and a space on the 40 man roster ? Can't be worse then TPJ can he ?

Umpbump asks:
Who is better The Kansas City Royals or Durham Bulls ?
