Announced that IF Adam Piatt has retired from baseball
Acquired IF Brent Abernathy from the Detroit Tigers for Cash
Well, if you take these two pieces of news together, it seems that Abernathy will take Piatt’s place on Buffalo’s roster. And when Corey Smith makes the jump from Akron, Abernathy will probably be gone. Jhonny Peralta, Chris Clapinski, Brandon Phillips, and Abernathy will play 2B, SS, and 3B, with Abernathy probably spending much of that time on the bench.
