Rays Claim Mike Ekstrom

The Rays claimed reliever Mike Ekstrom off waivers from the Padres, reports Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times.  He'd been designated for assignment a week ago to make room for Jon Garland.

Ekstrom, 26, was done in by hits and home runs allowed in an 18.3-inning big league stint last year.  At Triple A, he had a 1.73 ERA, 6.2 K/9, and 2.3 BB/9 in 62.3 innings.

“was done in by hits and home runs allowed in an 18.3-inning big league stint last year.”

When you are having problems in Petco park… allowing home runs, there is a problem.

I’m confused; does he have a good looking sister, mother or something?
