According to WTM’s site, Aguero was injured for part of last season, but his performance thereafter at AA wasn’t inspiring at all. I doubt any team will claim him.

What even compelled them to mark him on the 40 man roster to begin with? I’m sure his reign down at the farm was a rocky one with those shotty numbers.

Because he can throw over 100mph, but tires out in the bullpen sessions. By the time, he’s on the mound, he only throws about 85-88mph.
