Figgy back in the organization

ed feverCorrespondent IApril 25, 2009

According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, Nelson Figueroa has re-signed a minor league deal with the Mets. After being mistreated by management, Figueroa had opted for free agency once he cleared waivers. As the Mets rotation was falling apart Figgy was testing the free agent market, with Manuel threatening rotational changes it looks like the Mets give him the best opportunity of returning to the majors. I'm still glad that Figgy made a stand and I'm sure opting out was his way of sending Omar a message, but I'm also glad he's back in the mix....

As exclusively reported in the Daily News on Saturday, Nelson Figueroa has decided to re-sign with the organization after testing free agency by refusing a minor-league assignment earlier in the week. Apparently, sometimes the best opportunity is where they know and like you, even if he was abruptly designated for assignment to make room for a second lefty reliever, Casey Fossum, after Figueroa allowed three runs in six innings against the Brewers on Sunday. source Daily News
