Here is the reason that Figs hadn’t made the team out of spring training:

Figueroa: 1.2 IP, 10 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 3 HR, 53 pitches

By the time I got my hot dog and sat down, the game was over!

He was drafted 833rd overall by the New York Mets in the 30th round of the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft and was subsequently traded along with outfielder Bernard Gilkey to the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1998 for Jorge Fábregas, Willie Blair and cash considerations.

...Maybe it’s a sign that he’s not meant to be on the Mets...
...But no!
