I’ve had a few Bisons posts slowly being worked on in draft, but last night Buffalo’s Nelson Figueroa was called up and started for the Mets. Figueroa has pitched well all season in Buffalo, and it was nice to see his hard work get recognized by the emergency start.
However, his trip to the majors wasn’t a smooth one. Last night he was roughed up in a 6-5 Diamondbacks win. Figueroa went 1 2/3 innings last night, allowing ten hits and six runs including three home runs.
Coca Cola Field must have felt a world away last night. Buffalo isn’t in town for another week or so, but look for a few things on the last home stand and baseball in particular this week.
