Mets claim Pat Misch off waivers..

The NY Post is reporting that the Mets have claimed Pat Misch off waivers from the San Francisco Giants.

Misch still has options and was recently demoted to AAA, but the Giants were in a 40 man roster crunch, they had to try and sneak him through waivers to make roster room.

The 27 y/o left hander has played four partial seasons in the majors with the Giants, he's appeared in 38 games ( 11 starts ), 98 total innings with an ERA of 5.20. Most of his major league experience has been as a reliever but he's projected as a #4 starter.

Misch will report to AAA Buffalo, to make room for him on the 40 man roster, the Mets placed Billy Wagner on the 60-day DL...
