Jackson, the clubâ€™s eighth-round pick in 2005, is on the shelf with a lower body injury. Bean, 29, is logging significant big league time for the first time.
Vech hurt his hand on a defensive play last week, I doubt it’s a major injury, but you never know…
Potential Scrap Heap Pickup: SS Chase Lambin, who was cut by the Mets. He can’t be worse than Miguel Cairo, could he? Hee Seop Choi was released by the D-Rays, but word on the street is he’s heading back to Korea.
He’s still in baseball? RHP Paul Shuey (reinstated from the minor league DL by the O’s), OF Wil Cordero (released by the Mets), andÂ OF Angel Fermin (former Yankee prospect was cut by the D-Rays).
