Zarate now a Padre

Mauro Zarate is now in someone else's system.

...the Padres claimed right-handed pitcher Mauro Zarate off waivers from the Florida Marlins on Friday. The 24-year-old made his major league debut on August 7 at Philadelphia and appeared in four games for the Marlins in 2007, allowing seven runs -- six earned -- while striking out three and walking one in five innings.

Not really a huge loss but it does make a person wonder why we are just giving these guys away instead of trading them and getting something in return.

I guess the main point of this post to keep you up to date.
