Mets claim Carvajal

Matt Cerrone at Metsblog is reporting that the Mets have claimed Marcos Carvajal off waivers from the D-Rays.

According to the Tampa Tribune, the Mets have claimed 22–year-old RHP Marcos Carvajal off waivers from the Devil Rays. He was designated for assignent on Tuesday.

In 72 innings at Double-A last season, Cravajal had a 3.86 ERA, 69 strikeouts and 36 walks. In 2005, he made 39 relief appearances for Rockies, during which he posted a 3.78 ERA in Colorado and a 7.32 ERA on the road.

…from what i can gather, carvajal is known for having a live arm, a mid-to-high 90s fastball, a decent slider and a heilman-like change-up…

That explains Burgos being DFA last night. Carvajal is another young live arm with options, a 3.78ERA in Mile High Colorado is pretty good.
