Designated OF Jason Tyner for Assignment

Recalled LHP Jeremy Sowers

Tyner  was utterly superfluous, a speedy outfielder on a team that has much better speedy outfielders. So on the same day he ripped the team that gave him two years of extended playing time, he goes onto the waiver wire, impeccable timing on his part. If I were him, I'd consider myself very fortunate to get over 1300 major-league at-bats despite a career OPS+ of 70.

Fun fact: Jason Tyner was selected in the 1st Round (21st pick) of the1998 Draft by the New York Mets, one pick after CC Sabathia.
