Harden, Suppan & Snell

Shocking news out of Rangers camp…Rich Harden has been placed on the DL with a strain glute.

The right-hander struggling so badly in Texas he was nearly removed from the rotation just days before.

Now he’s back in his comfort zone, on the training table for the next 15-days.

How this man makes $7.5M is beyond me. Jim Hendry could not have been more right parting ways with Harden when he did.

In another unsurprising move, the Brewers released Jeff Suppan who’s steadily gotten worse since 2007 when he signed the richest contract in Milwaukee’s history: $42M over 4-yr.

Now he’s back with the Cardinals, and pitching guru Dave Duncan, who made Suppan a very respectable post season pitcher in 2006 during St. Louis’ World Series run.

It’s just what the Cubs don’t need–Duncan rekindling an old flame!

If I’m Jim Hendry, I take a look at Ian Snell who was dumped by Seattle this week.

Snell never adjusted to starting in the American League, but he did have a few successful years with Pittsburgh.

I’d take a run at Snell as a veteran bullpen arm…Lord knows, the Cubs need the late inning help!
