Forgot to post this earlier: Both Wil Ledezma and Steven Shell cleared waivers this week; Ledezma has accepted his assignment to Class AAA Syracuse, while Shell opted to become a free agent.

With so many teams in need of relief, maybe Shell thinks he can catch on somewhere else. But with what Mike Rizzo said about Shell when he was sent down—that he didn’t like the way Shell prepared for games or the whole “aura” about him—seemed like Shell wasn’t catching on here anyway.
