Rangers Designate Hector Noesi For Assignment

The Rangers have designated pitcher Hector Noesi for assignment, the club announced via press release. The righty made only three appearances with the club after being acquired ten days ago from the Mariners.

Noesi, 27, has had a forgettable start to the 2014 season. His ERA stands at 14.21 through 6 1/3 frames. Over parts of four seasons in the bigs, Noesi has allowed 5.81 earned runs per nine in just under 200 total frames. He has struggled roughly equally against batters from both sides of the plate: over his career, lefties have touched him for a .866 OPS while righties have managed a .832 mark.

Another example of why you don’t trade with the Yankees. They don’t have any talent in the minor leagues. If they did, they wouldn’t need to sign all these high-priced free agents. Their best prospect is Gary Sanchez, yet he hit just .250 last year spending most of his time in high-A ball. They just don’t have the parts worthy of a massive trade piece, like a Tulowitzki, who people are already writing him down as the NYY shortstop next year. If the Rockies were even going to trade him, they would NEVER move him to the Yankees. This disastrous trade of Pineda for Noesi and Montero is just a reminder of that. This news just got me on this topic, because being in NY, I always hear Yankee fans attempt to validate their prospects. The bottom line is they don’t have legitimate talent.

Do you realize prospects don’t work out all the time? Montero was the centerpiece of that deal, nobody was selling Noesi as a great prospect.

Yankees have to run a high payroll because they are contenders every single year.

In recent years other teams have gotten production from Yankees prospects. Clippard, Jackson, Kennedy, Tabata, etc.

There is some legitimate talent in the Yankees minors, not much in the very high levels, but in the lower levels there is.

And it’s not like until this year that the Montero-Pineda deal was very good for either team. Pineda missed 2 years, and now has made a handful of starts. This trade is far from over.

Its over. Noesi is a free agent and Montero was last seen coming to shore outside of Tokyo, smashing buildings and fighing Ultraman(and losing).

The Yankee minor leagues play in very strong pitcher parks. Of course they are going to have artificially deflated offensive numbers.

what about Mark Melancon, Jose Tabata, Austin Jackson, Phil Coke, Ian Kennedy (2011 CYA),Melky Cabrera, Mike Dunn, Clippard,Ted Lilly(2002), Mike Lowell(1999).

Sometimes they do, but they usually keep those guys. The ones to worry about are the ones they’re open to trading.

It is hard to overstate just how bad Hector Noesi was for the Rangers. Just wow. He almost blew, what, a 9 run lead? How do you go into the game in the 9th inning, with a 9 run lead, working mop up duty, and nearly lose the game? Impressive.

Now you know what us Mariner fans have had to deal with for 2 years… this guy needs to retire and start an insurance agency or something… or someone else in the AL West can pick him up so the Mariners can have a chance to beat SOMEBODY

In what game did he nearly blow a 9 run lead? He made 3 appearances for the Rangers and in 2 of them gave up 0 runs. In his third appearance he entered the game in the 9th when the White Sox were WINNING 9-2 then he gave up 7 runs in the 1 inning. At no point did he blow a lead for the Rangers.

Maybe the Astros can pick him up… then the Mariners MIGHT be able to beat them.

and the guy has good stuff………..but he pipes it in 92-94 mph but it’s like batting practice for major leaguers. Maybe a change up and/or split finger would help?

Contender for least surprising move of the day.

In the words of Nelson from the Simpsons “Ha-Ha!” I laughed when the Rangers signed him from the M’s man… this guys is THAT bad. As an M’s fan, I would have rather trotted out Horaciao Ramirez than Hector Noesi any day. Its in his name for crying out loud: Hec No! “Skipper, should we send out Noesi?” “Heck No!?”

His giddy-up was good… He just couldn’t use it. When the Rangers picked him up from the M’s i was like “great, another guy who is going to leave Seattle and be a super star…” I was thrilled to see he was just a complete waste of space from every possible angle. Then I later curled up into a ball and cried myself to sleep after the M’s fell to the ASTROS!!!!

I still can’t get over the fact that he gave up 7 runs in one inning. jeez.
