Phillies Designate Nelson Figueroa For Assignment

The Phillies designated reliever Nelson Figueroa for assignment, according to David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News (via Twitter). The club also activated Chad Durbin and Antonio Bastardo and subsequently optioned Bastardo to Triple A.

The Phils claimed Figueroa off of waivers from the Mets back in April and the right-hander has since posted a 3.46 ERA in 26 innings of work, allowing 20 hits and nine walks, while striking out 15. Those numbers are solid, but MLB teams let Figueroa to clear waivers six weeks ago, so chances are it'll happen again.

He has pitched well recently. Baez who rarely pitches (for obvious reasons) needs to go. Another bad signing by RAJ….they both need to go.

Joan Baez is terrible. I’d rather keep Figgy over him.

Waivers is the natural habitat of Nelson Figueroa.
