DFA to make room for Straily. Pity, I'd rather have seen Mike Walker cut.

I don't know who Mike Walker is, but if he's related to Mike Wright I'm ok with him being DFA'd too.

I meant Wright. Bad typing day.

Maybe he meant Walker, Texas Ranger, which is code for Chris Davis.

I'm hoping this means Diaz will be up soon.

Why would this have anything to do with Diaz? If he was on the cusp of being called up, he wouldn't have been sent back to Bowie.

I'm guessing they wanted a true outfielder instead of Jackson.  They have Alberto and Nunez backing up in the infield.  I just personally would rather the outfielder they call up to be Diaz.  That guy excites me.

I think that he was considering Jackson as an outfielder that would need to be replaced.  But, with Mancini able to play in left or right, albeit, not particularly well, along with Smith, Jr., Mullins, and Rickard, another OF'er isn't really needed.  Hays, when ready, or Santander would be more logical choices anyway since they're both already on the 40 man roster.

I'm guessing it means Mancini is the RF and Nunez the DH until further notice.

Just an fyi: The only person who has said Drew Jackson was DFA'ed was the kid who made the initial report. Not a single person who has reported and confirmed Strailey has confirmed the Jackson move.

Yeah, I’m not seeing anyone other than that kid. I’m going to need to see another source other than a non verified account.

I'd be delighted if Jackson stays and Wright goes.
