And no one took him on Waivers in the ADL for nothing.

Up steps Kendrys to the plate on a beautiful afternoon in the Bronx. The short porch in right beckons...

Singles and is now 2-for-2.

I thought I got lucky when he caught on with the Yankees.

I released him on Sunday to make room for Yordan Alvarez. If I had waited one more day, I could have reserved Morales, but I knew it would kill me if Alvarez hit a home run in his debut, which he did.

After today's claims, which include straight waiver claims (no FAAB), Morales is a still a free agent.

Athletics designated 1B/DH Kendrys Morales for assignment.

Morales was batting just .204/.310/.259 with one home run through 126 plate appearances this season with Oakland. The 35-year-old figures to pass through waivers unclaimed before landing on the free agent market. Oakland acquired Morales from the Blue Jays in late March, shortly after Matt Olson suffered a fractured hamate bone in Japan. Olson has since returned to the Athletics' active roster.

How did Kendrys Morales get a triple? A curious mind, wanting to know, just watched the condensed game.

Ill-advised dive by Polanco on a bloop to right. 

Anyone else, it would have been an inside-the-parker.

Eck, the next AB: "He's got a blind spot, Morales. Three pitches, punchout."

If you guessed that I have Morales, you guessed right.

"He's not swingin' it," says Eck in the game on MLB.

To put it mildly.

His BABIP is down to .180.

He's being killed by the shift, while he has the kind of swing -- no uppercut -- that should so easily knock the ball the opposite way.

Current G/L/F: 48/16/36

Current BABIP: .204
