Right handed reliever Chris Bootcheck recalled from AAA. Tommy Murphy sent down in his place.
Our bullpen has been seriously depleted in the last few days after two rookie starters and two veterans who struggled... Romero, Gregg, Carrasco probably can't be used tonight. Donnelly is iffy... Pretty much leaves Shields and K-Rod for us.
I'm guessing Bootcheck won't even be used... looks mainly like it's insurance if we get into pitching trouble tonight. And he'll be back down when Escobar gets reactivated.
At least this gets Murphy off the pine. I was hoping he would play more, but Scoscia has his ways. At least he's getting time in the field at AAA.
