So that's our roster move necessitated. -- is there another roster move today. Well yeah we have an announcement for tomorrow but Franklin Morales will go on the disabled list and order to activate.

And that we'll see how he does against the LA Angels. While the Angels are swept last weekend pitching match up back. That we saw last week with -- Weaver and buckles and Weaver was pretty effective within 87 mile an hour fastball. Yeah 87 that denying the not throwing only once did but to know he has such a deceptive. Delivery with the ball gets on players'. A little differently than other pitchers and it takes a little getting used to hopefully -- home just last week will.
