Phils Pick Up Figueroa From Mets

The Phillies claimed an old face off of waivers today as they brought back 35-year old Nelson Figueroa.  The Former Mets pitcher was let go this week after a 3-8 season in 2009, in which his ERA was a respectable 4.09.

It appears as though he will take the spot of Andrew Carpenter, who was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley before the Phils opening day game against the Nationals.  Figueroa, if you remember, was part of the monumental Curt Schilling trade that sent the Phils ace to the D-Backs in 2000.
