Just when you think it's over, the saga continues.
Ankiel added to the 25 man roster at the last minute.
Apparently, Ankiel has not yet been placed on waivers, as the Cardinals are trying
to make sure that he has a safe passage to the minors. He was placed on the Cardinals'
25-man roster by Saturday's deadline. On Tuesday, he will be removed from the roster and will likely be placed on waivers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
This move by the Cardinals just seems to be
postponing the inevitable, but we'll keep you posted as this situation progresses.
As an outfielder, Ankiel batted just .167 in spring training.
As a pitcher, Ankiel didn't appear in any major league spring training games.
One has to wonder who's going to put him on their 25 man roster?
