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.
