Figueroa #5

Just one week ago I wrote about how Nelson Figueroa should be the Mets fifth starter. Now, Pedro is hurt and Nelson recently flew to Miami and will now be the Mets fifth starter.

Nelson has not pitched in the Major leagues since going 0-3 with a 5.72 era with the pirates in 2004. Since then he has played in an independent league (0-1, 2.79 era), 1 year in AAA (4-5, 4.38), and last season in Mexico (8-6, 3.87). He finished up spring training going 2-2 with a 4.32 era in 8 games (2 starts), with 8 walks, 8 strikeouts, 16 hits in 16.2 innings pitched.
