Waiver Wire Trio - Achter, Bourjos & Mariot

Sorry to inform you Frenchy lovin' sons of bitches out there, but Jeff Francoeur likely won't be back with the Phillies in 2016.  Personally, I think it's for the best.  He was a fun guy to have on the team last season, but his track record suggests he wouldn't come close to being successful for a consecutive season.  Why won't he be back - Peter Bourjos, who was just claimed off waivers from St. Louis and happens to be a veteran outfielder, thus filling the void Frenchy left.  Bourjos had a down year in 2015, but had posted positive WARs in every season other than that.  He's a career .241/.682 hitter over parts of 6 seasons with the Angels and Cardinals and is known for quality defense (despite last year's blip). He'll be 29 next season, bats from the right side, and will make $2M in his final year of arbitration. He'll compete for playing time with Cody Asche, Aaron Altherr, and Darnell Sweeney.
AJ Achter is a 27 year old right-handed relief pitcher.  He was taken from the Twins and comes with minimal MLB experience - 18 G, 24.1 IP, and a 5.18 ERA/1.44 WHIP. He's been much better in 6 minor league seasons with a 2.88 ERA/1.09 WHIP and over a strikeout per inning.  There's potential here and at the very least depth.

Michael Mariot is guessed it, a relief pitcher.  Klentak loves him some pitching. Anyway, he's also 27 years old, is right-handed, and has minimal MLB experience with poor results - 19 G, 28 IP, 6.11 ERA/1.68 WHIP.  Luckily, also like Achter, his minor league track record has been much better with a 3.34 ERA/1.22 WHIP and 8.4 K/9. Some potential and at the very least depth.  

Semi-sad news - Nefi Ogando was lost on waivers to the Marlins.  Meh.

Other news - Andres Blanco avoided arbitration and settled on a $1.45M contract.
