Kuhl decided to call it a season as his wife has some health issues he wanted to focus on. He plans on picking back up in the spring.

Despite the unparalleled magnificence of his pitch framing, seldom seen in this hemisphere, Hedges had started only 5 games in the 2 months he's been with Texas. However, he has managed to get 5 singles in 21 ABs for a sparkling .238 BA. So apparently, they just want him for his bat. That .238 would have been his career best, but combined with his Pirates stats, he's still just at .187 for the season. I hope Cherington's analytics department recalculates the advantage of pitch framing compared to the disadvantage of an automatic out in the lineup. I guess the Rangers use a different formula. ;)

So trading him for Moreta was a good move

Really sad news about Tim Wakefield’s passing. He was real class act who appreciated the heck out of being a major league player.

His 2nd season with the Pirates was awful. He couldn't throw strikes. He was 6-11 with an ERA of 5.61 and 145 hits in 128.1 IP. He averaged 5.3 walks per 9 IP. He went back to AAA the following year (1994) and was terrible going 5-15 with a 5.84 ERA and a lot of walks. The Pirates released him prior to the 1995 season. The Red Sox signed him with the plan to have Phil Niekro tutor him to improve his knuckler. The plan worked and Wakefield immediately improved and began a long career with Boston.
