Red Sox Claim Santo Luis

The Red Sox claimed righty Santo Luis off waivers from the White Sox, according to a team press release.  Luis was then optioned to Double A.  Jed Lowrie was placed on the 60-day DL to clear a spot for Luis.

Luis, 26, posted a 4.34 ERA, 12.7 K/9, and 3.7 BB/9 in 56 High A relief innings last year, allowing 11 home runs.  He saved 14 games for Joe McEwing's Winston-Salem Dash.  The Sox had claimed Luis from the Astros in '07 in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft.

I thought he would have ended up with the Cardinals (Get it?)

I get it for more than one reason! Man, we need bullpen help. But I was more excited for the Joe McEwing reference! Good to see he’s doing well in his post-playing days.

That K/9 ratio is so high it’s retarded.

My problem with that is “Luis, 26″+ “High A relief”
