Waiver claims made on Raul Ibanez and Jarrod Washburn both expired Thursday without a deal being made.

Both players will stick with the team for the rest of the season. The Tigers were the team that put in a claim on Ibanez, and Minnesota made a claim on Washburn - likely to block the White Sox, who were thought to be interested.



Its kind of funny how the team that needs pitching puts a claim in on yet another hitter and the team that has great pitching and a set rotation puts a claim in on a pitcher.


It's believed that the Twins put claims in on both players, but the Tigers have the worse record and higher waiver priority.

There has been some speculation that the Twins wanted Washburn (hard to believe for me) to replace one of their young starters and move that young starter to a 7th/8th inning role. The Twins do have some problems in their bullpen, but wanting Washburn is tough to believe.

Twins claimed Washburn and offered Bonser for him to put Washburn in the bullpen. The Mariners asked for Slowey or Blackburn. For Jarrod Washburn... The Mariners management is out of their mind.

Saying the Twins have some problems in their bullpen is an understatement. If they had arms in the pen that could hold on to a lead long enough for Nathan to take the mound, they'd have a large lead in the AL Central.
