    Torres to DL, Kickham Optioned to Fresno, Noonan & Peguero Recalled

    @AlexPavlovic: Torres placed on DL with left achilles strain, Kickham back to Triple-A. Peguero and Noonan recalled from Fresno.
    I'm willing to bet the Torres injury is phantom and I'm hoping we've seen the last of him.

    Nothing against Nock Noonan, but I wish they had called up Perez.

    Apparently Torres has had bone spurs in his ankle (or something like that) since 2011 and has been just icing it down, and might end up needing surgery. So not a phantom DL as much as a way to make roster space way too late in the season.

    So much deck chair moving is pretty funny with a little over a week until rosters expand.

    @AlexPavlovic: Torres having surgery to remove bone spurs in Achilles. Out for six months.
    I'll eat crow. It wasn't a phantom injury...

    Definitely different than Guillermo Mota's IT Band Syndrome injury.

    Anyone else thinking Torres never plays another big league game?
