Patrick Misch DFA

Designated to make room for Kelvin Pichardo, a pitching prospect coming back from a 50-game suspension for pulling a Manny Ramirez. Misch, originally a 7th round draft pick in 2003, pitched parts of 4 seasons for the Giants, going 0-7 in a total of 38 games.

Perhaps knew something the Giants didn’t-as of this writing, its profile for Misch had already listed his “Final Game” as 9/23/2008. I’m guessing he’ll probably just get outrighted to Fresno after clearing waivers, but if the Giants can trade him for an actual player, hey all the more power to Brian Sabean. Not sure though if he’s shown enough to earn a career as a “token left handed pitcher”.

UPDATE: Misch was claimed off waivers by the New York Mets and assigned to their AAA affiliate at Buffalo. So starts his journeyman career.
