Indians make a late roster move. C Kris Watts has been added to the roster replacing C Wyatt Toregas. Listen now on wnde.com— Scott McCauley (@ScottDMcCauley) June 9, 2011
Scott McCauley reports. It sounds like he's coming up, in the wake of Chris Snyder's injury last night. This is what happens when three catchers get injured, I suppose. I would have preferred to see Eric Fryer, but that would create roster headaches later, since Fryer would have to be added to the 40-man roster. (Toregas has to be also, of course, but he would also certainly clear waivers if designated for assignment, and the Pirates wouldn't even really care if that weren't the case.) If the Pirates figure someone else will join or rejoin the roster in a couple weeks, this move makes sense. UPDATE: Rob Biertempfel says it's likely that Toregas will be recalled.
