Just saw on the transactions that the Rangers shipped Daniel Haigwood to Boston for righty Scott Shoemaker and cash money. What's Haigwood's deal, anyways? He's 23, got sent to Tejas for Fabio Castro, and until this year hasn't pitched above AA (which is where he'll be now, as well as on the Red Sox 40-man). So why'd the Rangers D him FA? And I remember seeing Shoemaker precisely nowhere, besides looking him up right now. All the official site says is he's got a 10.80 ERA this season at Portland, two appearances, 3.1 IP. Soxprospects adds: "Makes use of a solid fastball and an above average slider. Also has a workable curve and a change in his arsenal. Gets ahead in the count well. High strikeout totals. Very relaxed and mature on the mound. Good fielder and athlete. Excellent k/bb ratio. Showed the ability to go deep into games in college." Oh, and he's 25.
