Cardinals grab Aquino off of Waivers


Today the Cardinals made a small splash by claiming Jayson Aquino off waivers when the Indians released him when they claimed Joey Butler. Since the Cardinals are quite intrigued by him due to  his age of 23 and lots of upside even though he has bounced around on the waiver wire quite a bit. Still just 23, he’s obviously intriguing to teams. But Aquino is difficult to keep on a 40-man roster since he’s yet to establish himself in the upper minors. While bouncing between the Blue Jays, Pirates, and Indians, he worked to a 3.28 ERA, with 5.6 K/0 against 2.0 BB/9, over 137 1/3 innings at the High-A level last season.
