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.
