At least that's according to the Dodger public relations director. He's already been claimed, too, by the Red Sox.
No surprise that he's not going to be in Dodger Stadium. There were just too many potential first basemen, and not enough roster slots. It's also no surprise that Theo snagged him, since he's exactly the kind of player stat heads love. What is a surprise is that Neddy just cut him loose without apparently trying to get something for him. Folks have suggested maybe we could've gotten Alex Cora back. Now, there was a deadline involved. If Choi was still on the roster after the 29th, he would be owed his full salary. Now the Dodgers are only on the hook for about a quarter of it.
Anyway, the Choi era is over.
