News: Sheffield and Figgy Up, Cancel Out

The team announced Gary Sheffield will be activated from the disabled list prior to today’s game, while Robinson Cancel will designated for assignment.

Additionally, Nelson Figueroa will be promoted to start Monday against the D-Backs, since Tim Redding pitched in relief on Saturday.

Figueroa is 7–1 with a 1.51 ERA in his last 10 starts for Triple-A Buffalo.

the question is, who will be removed from the roster to make room for figgy… i’m think Pat Misch, who has not pitched since July 19, despite having allowed just three runs in 13 innings pitched…
