Flurry of moves sends Rondon packing, Stoneburner back to Thunder

Graham Stoneburner is back in the Trenton bullpen. That came down after Dellin Betances, who spent a few days in the majors but never pitched, was returned to Triple-A to make room for Ivan Nova, who was re-activated from the disabled list. 

Then the Yankees acquired David Huff off of waivers from the Indians. That meant someone from the 40-man roster had to go. Not surprisingly, that someone was Francisco Rondon, the Thunder left-hander who was frustratingly ineffective as a starter and a reliever this year. 

In 12 games (six starts) with Trenton, Rondon was 2-3 with a 7.46 ERA and 27 Ks against 25 BBs. Still, he held lefties to a .205/.279/.308 line with just two extra-base hits and four walks in 39 ABs, so he has value. Scouts continually tell me he has three solid pitches (fastball, slider, change), and that it's just a matter of putting it together. I wouldn't be surprised if he finds another home. 

Stoneburner has put together a 2-3 record with a 4.32 ERA in nine games, all but one of which came with the RailRiders. He pitched four innings and earned the save in his only game with the Thunder this season. 

Huff, 28, made three relief appearances with the Indians this season, allowing 5ER in 3.0IP. Originally selected by Cleveland in Supplemental Round A (39th overall pick) of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, Huff has appeared in 58 Major League games (52 starts) over parts of five seasons – all with the Indians (2009-13), going 18-26 with a 5.40 ERA (288.1IP, 173ER). He opened the 2013 season with Triple-A Columbus where he was 3-1 with a 4.07 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 24.1 innings pitched over nine games (two starts).
