Julian Tavarez was DFA’d by the Red Sox and elected free agency instead of going to Pawtucket. The Boston Globe is reporting that Bartolo Colon told the paper that Tavarez said that he wants to pitch for the Mets.
Tavarez pitched in nine games for the Sox this season to a 6.39 ERA. I don’t think that the Mets need an Aaron Heilman clone at this point. Thanks, but no thanks Julian.
