Vasquez claimed on waivers

The Tigers put right-hander Virgil Vasquez on outright waivers with the idea of taking him off the 40-man roster. The Red Sox claimed him on Tuesday.

Most of you will remember Vasquez for his spot starts with the team in 2007. Though Vasquez was on the 40, He did not pitch with the Tigers at all in 2008, passed over for Armando Galarraga early in the season, Eddie Bonine heading into the summer and Chris Lambert later on. He went 12-12 with a 4.81 ERA in 27 games for Triple-A Toledo.

Well having seen Virgil pitch a few times I can’t say that I am sad to see Virgil go, he never really proved himself either in the minors or up with the club. However it makes me wonder if a team that has really pretty good pitching want’s him. What are we missing again if anything???
