Bullington gets the DFA

It what has to be classified as one of the least surprising moves ever, Brian Bullington's been designated for assignment to make room for Chris Duffy on the 40-man roster. That's got to really sting for Bullington, because Duffy is staying in Altoona. Still, the writing's on the wall when you get called up for two weeks and don't pitch at all, then the team calls up an outfielder over a reliever, even though they really need bullpen help. He'll almost certainly pass through waivers and stay in AAA, but his ego can't feel good right now.
