FORT MYERS, Fla. Cheap Carlos Zambrano Jersey . -- The Minnesota Twins have granted relief pitcher Matt Guerrier his unconditional release, making the 35-year-old right-hander a free agent. The Twins announced the move Monday. Guerrier was trying to make a comeback from surgery on his right elbow. He gave up three runs and five hits in four innings during spring training. Guerrier spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Twins, starting in 2004, and was at camp with a minor league contract. With Jared Burton, Casey Fien and Anthony Swarzak already established as reliable right-handers in the Twins bullpen, and the possibility of starter Samuel Deduno joining them, there was no room for Guerrier. The Twins also optioned right-handers Michael Tonkin and Ryan Pressly and catcher Chris Herrmann to Triple-A Rochester.

How foolishly wrong I was. Forget the now inherent corruption and back handed favours that plague the beautiful game. Goal Line Technology? Youre having a laugh. As for them penalty cheating bandits, footballs lawmakers upend them by awarding the penalty to the opponent each time a player attempts to con the referee into awarding ghost penalties.TORONTO – Apparently, Black Friday knows no borders. Alex Anthopoulos, the Canadian general manager of Major League Baseball’s only Canadian team, spent America’s favourite shopping day putting the finishing touches on a deal with the Oakland Athletics, a trade which set the hot stove ablaze and left the principles involved stunned. Josh Donaldson is a Toronto Blue Jay. Going to the Athletics are Brett Lawrie, pitchers Kendall Graveman and Sean Nolin, and shortstop prospect Franklin Barreto. The deal was first reported by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Anthopoulos spoke to Donaldson shortly after the deal was finalized, approximately 9:30 p.m. EST. “He was excited,” said Anthopoulos. “I told him he reminded me a little bit of (Jose) Bautista with his swing and, you know, he has the leg lift.” In Donaldson, the Jays get one of the game’s best third basemen, a 28-year-old who’s hit 53 home runs in his first two big league seasons. He’s done so in the regrettable pit that is the Oakland Coliseum, a cavernous monstrosity which gets bigger at night thanks to the marine layer which floats in off of San Francisco Bay and tends to keep fly balls from clearing the outfield fence. He’s posted Weighted Runs Created Plus (wRC+) numbers of 147 in 2013 and 129 last year, good for second best among American League third basemen in both seasons. Donaldson is a solid defender at the hot corner. He may not be to Lawrie’s caliber, but he’s in a different offensive class and that more than offsets whatever Toronto is losing with the glove. Most importantly, Toronto has Donaldson under club control for the next four years. Despite being 28, Donaldson has a little more than two years of big league service time, which means he won’t be eligible for free agency until after the 2018 seasons. When you consider that two third basemen in the same age range as Donaldson, Pablo Sandoval with the Red Sox and Kyle Seager with the Mariners, just signed $100-million contracts, the Jays are getting a player worth at least that much on the cheap. Donaldson is first-time arbitration eligible this winter. Lawrie couldn’t stay healthy, appearing in only 302 of 486 games in his first three full big league seasons for a 62-percent appearance rate. Given big billing when, as a prospect, he was acquired from Milwaukee, in a trade for Shawn Marcum, Lawrie shone defensively but was inconsistent with the bat. His brilliant two month trial run in late 2011, during which he posted a .953 OPS in 43 games, set tthe bar too high. Cheap Cubs Jerseys. The general manager bristled when asked if Lawrie fell short of expectations. “No, I don’t think that’s fair at all. I think it’s wrong,” said Anthopoulos. “I think Brett is a very, very good player and he can get even better. He’s a gold glove caliber defender at third. He energizes his teammates. He plays hard. He plays to win.” Graveman, a college draft pick who shot through the farm system after developing a cut fastball, and Nolin, who seemed to get lost in the shuffle after a disastrous one-and-done debut in May, 2013, were expendable because the Jays envision a starting rotation featuring Aaron Sanchez, Marcus Stroman, Drew Hutchison and Daniel Norris. That Anthopoulos could acquire Donaldson without having to spin off any of aforementioned big arms makes the trade all the more impressive. Franklin Barreto, an 18-year-old shortstop, had worked his way to short season Vancouver, where he posted an .865 OPS in 73 games for the Canadians. He may have a long and successful career but the big league portion isn’t starting this year or next. Consider it the price of doing business. From Oakland’s point of view, general manager Billy Beane may feel he’s plugged a long-term hole created when he moved hotshot Addison Russell to the Cubs in the deadline deal that brought the Athletics Jeff Samardzija. Anthopoulos called Donaldson a “gamer,” which comes on the heels of his effusive praise of free agent signee Russell Martin, who Anthopoulos said “checked off all the boxes.” In the area of intangibles, the Jays have brought in two men who play key positions well above average and who have tasted postseason baseball in each of the last two years. Martin’s been to the playoffs seven times in nine big league seasons. Gone from a clubhouse some on the inside called “dysfunctional” are L
