White Sox claim Hector Noesi off waivers five days after tagging him for seven runs

Rangers right-hander Hector Noesi had a miserable outing Sunday against the White Sox, getting knocked around for seven runs in one inning. He was then designated for assignment by the Rangers and today he was claimed off waivers by … the White Sox.

After you beat them, let them join you. Is that how the old saying goes?

Noesi has actually been terrible against more than just the White Sox, boasting a 5.81 ERA in 197 innings as a big leaguer. And he’s been similarly awful at Triple-A with a 5.33 ERA in 174 innings.

I’m not sure why the White Sox felt the need to acquire Noesi, but the least they could do is keep him on the roster long enough to let him face his old Rangers teammates.

    Cooper needs to keep up with Searge on reclamation projects. Now that Edinson Volquez looks like a real MLB pitcher this season, it is Don Cooper’s move.

    I kind of liked this guy as a long reliever with the Yankees. His stock sure has fallen.

    Maybe he was tipping his pitches and/or they think there is something easy to change in his delivery that could make him a viable pitcher again. If not, they aren’t out much.

    Have you seen the Sox pen? Not much difference. If Coop thing he might be able to fix something might as well try.

    Alarms should have gone gong around the league when the Mariners released this guy.

    Come on, the Mariners dropped him, fer cryin’ out loud!
