Mets Designate Figueroa, Sosa

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

According to, the Mets have designated Nelson Figueroa and Jorge Sosa for assignment. Figueroa was 2-3 with a 5.12 ERA so far this season, but it is possible he was designated because of his comments made towards the Nationals after they beat the Mets last night. The Mets called up Claudio Vargas in his place, who was a better option anyways, to take over in the rotation. As for Sosa, he was 4-1 with a 7.06 ERA but was struggling with his command. From previous years statistics, someone will take a chance on Sosa, but it is unclear who it will be. The Mets called up Fernando Tatis in his place.
