Two former Mets, infielder Anderson Hernandez and pitcher Nelson Figueroa, were claimed off waivers by the Houston Astros earlier today.
Hernandez was designated for assignment by the Indians earlier in the week. Figgy was DFA by the Philles for the 2nd time this year and this time he was claimed. The 36 year old filled in for the Phillies pretty good in the pen and as a spot starter. I am sure at this point Figgy wishes he signed with a Japanese team.
