Physical holding up Bartlett deal

Posted on: December 10, 2010 9:38 pm
It's been a couple of days since a deal was struck between the Rays and Padres sending shortstop Jason Bartlett from our nation's lower right-hand corner to its lower left-hand corner.

But no official announcement has been forthcoming, and a source tells the San Diego Union-Tribune the holdup is the physical for one of the pitchers going back to the Rays, either Adam Russell or Cesar Ramos. According to the U-T, "The problem is not believed to be serious, but there are no guarantees the deal will go through as originally agreed upon."
