The Blue Jays acquired minor league right-hander Sean O'Sullivan from Kansas City for cash considerations, the Royals announced. The marks the second time in two days that the injury-plagued Blue Jays have acquired right-handed pitching depth; they claimed David Pauley from the Angels yesterday.

O'Sullivan, 24, has a 6.75 ERA with 4.4 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 53 1/3 innings at Triple-A this year. He started ten games for last year's Royals team, posting a 7.25 ERA with 2.9 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 58 1/3 innings. The Royals selected O'Sullivan in the third round of the 2005 draft.

Well he's only 24, but a body. Between him and Pauley we have 2 bodies to throw out there.

A dead body is a body too.

I guess when you need to call up all these scrubs from AAA to pitch in the majors, your gonna need some scrubs to pitch in AAA.

I really do hate these crappy stop-gap minor league pitchers AA acquires. We need a significant arm that isn't a wild card on every given night.

I can just imagine that people are trying to extort more from us since we have an obvious need for starting pitching.

I don't know why some are upset about this, someone has to pitch in AAA. Its unfortunate that its not Chavez and Laffey, but when you lose 3/5's of your rotation inside a week and all your prospect depth ends up ******** the bed this year(Mcguire and Jenkins), you really don't have much choice.

We just need to suck it up the rest of the year because IMO it's all auditioning now .

no one is saying its a reward situation at all. Its what it is, a stop gap to eat innings.

We're 3 games back of a playoff spot. Not time to wave the white flag yet.
