Old hippity-hoppity buddy Eli Whiteside has been Designated for Assignment (DFA) by the Texas Rangers today. “Whitey” has had an interesting off-season, and will probably get another team to pick him up in the midst of his crazy offseason:
Would be kind of funny if the Dodgers picked him up. And signed him to a 2-year deal. Plenty of teams could use a fringe backup catcher, but Eli may be more suited for a AAA roster depth role as he enters his age 33 season.
No worries, friend! Eli and (Toronto GM) AA had their fling. I think that’s one relationship they’ll just look back on, give a light smile and shake their heads about.
