For the second time this year, the Mets have designated Nelson Figueroa for assignment to AAA Buffalo.

Figueroa will have to make it through waivers and then accept assignment, if the Mets are to keep the veteran pitcher.
Last time, Figgy opted for free agency but after not receiving much interest, he re-signed with the Mets.
This time, while he was with the team he never made it into a game, I still think Figgy will end up serving a purpose, to this team and hope he makes it back to Buffalo.
Tim Redding will make his Mets debut, what a challenge, coming off the DL, to face the best team in the National League...
The Mets designated Nelson Figueroa for assignment (again) to make room for Tim Redding, who starts tonight at Dodger Stadium. source Newsday
