SNY is reporting the Texas Rangers have claimed Darren O’Day off of waivers.
He was placed on waivers in order for the Mets to make room for Nelson Figueroa, who was later designated for assignment.
I think he got an unfair shot with the Mets. Yes the three runs that he inherited all scored, but the same thing happened with Pedro Feliciano and other bullpen guys. Yet they are still with the Mets.
The Mets had to do what they had to do. They needed the spot start from Figueroa. O’Day seemed like the expendable guy.
