D-Backs claim Boyer

Former Cardinals reliever Blaine Boyer has been claimed by the Diamondbacks, according to the Arizona Republic.





Boyer had no record and a 4.41 ERA in 15 games with the Cardinals following his acquisition from the Braves for outfielder Brian Barton.





I have to admit, i am puzzled why the Cardinals would release Boyer right after he pitched a solid five innings to bail the team out of a jam. The Birds called up highly touted pitcher Jess Todd but kept him for only one day before sending him back to Class AAA Memphis. What was the point of that?
