Laynce Nix a free agent, Daryl Thompson outrighted off 40-man roster


Mark Sheldon tweets it. I think we all expected Nix to get nixed with so many better, cheaper options, and Thompson shouldn't be a surprise either. Dude's been riddled with injuries. Remember his debut at Yankee Stadium though? That was awesome. MLBTraderumors also says Craig Tatum was claimed off waivers by the Orioles. Plenty of roster clean-up going on with deadline to set the 40-man fast approaching. Update at 4:04 PM (by BK): We have a list of players added to the 40-man roster: RHP Enerio Del Rosario OF Chris Heisey RHP Logan Ondrusek RHP Jordan Smith IF Chris Valaika LHP Philippe-Alexandre Valiquette LHP Travis Wood No shockers there, and Wood and Heisey get protection from the Rule 5. Anyone you think should have been protected but wasn't?
