Look who’s back. Back again. Figgy’s back. Tell a friend.
Nelson Figueroa is being called up again after Jonathon Niese allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings today vs. the Atlanta Braves. He was sent back down to Triple-A.
Figueroa, who went on the free agent market after being designated for assignment by the Mets, will make the 10-game road trip starting in San Francisco. He found no biters, so he decided to return to the Mets. Apparently, there were no hard feelings on either side. I guess the Mets would rather have a journeyman like Figueroa, rather than a rookie, on their roster as they head to the West Coast for a tough road trip.
Who’s happy to see Figgy back and who thinks Niese should’ve been given another shot?
