Jose Veras, Reliever, Acquired By Detroit Tigers From Houston Astros To Help Bullpen

Of those, Lo may be the most likely possibility, as he’s already on the 40-man roster and has been pitching well of late. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chia-Jen Lo is the RP who is promoted. He’s been scoreless over his last seven appearances with 0 walks. #Astros Sean Feist (@native_astro) July 29, 2013 Any of the three could be added, though, as Houston has open 40-man roster spots currently.Any of those three would help out a beleaguered bullpen, but I’d be shocked if any of those three were promoted and also named the team’s new closer.

Veras is 0-4 with a 2.93 ERA and 19 saves this season, and the 32-year-old right-hander has struck out 44 in 43 innings with only 14 walks. “We are pleased to add an experienced arm to our bullpen,” Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski said. “Jose can pitch in a variety of roles, provides depth in the bullpen, and complements the roles of Joaquin Benoit and Drew Smyly.” Detroit entered the season with a lot of uncertainty at the closer spot, and although Benoit has pitched well in that role of late, the AL Central-leading Tigers still needed bullpen depth.

Edward Snowden turned back at Moscow passport control, official says

It will be interesting to see how the management of Uralkali, whose shares were down 20%, responds to the negative reactions of its shareholders. We are of the opinion that there is still an opportunity for good projects, with talented management and excellent fundamentals, to meet the inevitable rising global demand for potash. Furthermore, the sensitivity analysis in our Preliminary Economic Assessment shows that the Holbrook Basin project would still be economically viable with a decrease in muriate of potash prices by over 30%, which would equal a drop to 300 USD per tonne. We believe that Passport’s Holbrook Basin potash project is uniquely positioned to benefit from current conditions for a number of reasons, including: It is one of the lowest Capex/Tonne greenfield potash projects in the Western Hemisphere at $780/tonne; It is one of the shallowest potash deposits in North America and in the world; It is located in a politically stable environment; It is located in one of the most friendly mining jurisdictions in the world; Infrastructure is in place: National and International shipping is available via BNSF railway which runs across the property and has available capacity; US Interstate 40 gives access to the US Interstate system; Water is on site; 995 MW Power Plant located 25 miles from the project site; There is a readily available workforce in the area. (Preliminary Economic Assessment of Passport Potash Inc., dated March 20, 2013) The actions of Uralkali caused a great deal of uncertainty in the capital markets. We remain convinced that Passport stands out amongst its peers as a promising opportunity, and we remain optimistic that when the dust settles over the next while that Passport will continue to stand out.

The document reportedly allows him to leave the airport transit zone where he arrived June 23 with a revoked U.S. passport, which did not allow him to legally enter Russia or board a flight elsewhere. The Federal Migration Service india visas online would not officially confirm or deny the reports. We dont have this information yet, agency spokeswoman Svetlana Gordeyeva said. Earlier this week, Kucherena told the Times that the certificate would allow Snowden to cross the Russian border and finally leave the airport transit zone. Snowden started passing through passport control, but some important documents were lacking, and he had to stay in the transit zone for at least another day, said a Federal Migration Service official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
