Jordan Bastian from bluejays.com twitters that Randy Ruiz has been called up from AAA Las Vegas to replace the released Alex Rios. Give the Jays credit for calling up a player whose last name begins with "R" and also has four letters. You'll know the team is in real cost-cutting mode if he wears #15 because the "R" is in already in place and they can recycle the "I" by moving it over. They'll have to shell out for a "U" and "Z". I hope it doesn't kill the team's budget. Actually, he was wearing #3 in Spring Training so that may be the number he'll wind up with.
Update 08/11/2009 @ 7:00 pm: Ruiz will indeed be wearing #3. I'm sure Rogers is happy it's only one number to sew on the jersey.
