The Long Island Ducks announced today that they have signed former big league pitcher, Daniel Herrera.
Herrera pitched in 131 games for the Cincinnati Reds, Milawuakee Brewers, and New York Mets from 2008-2011. He posted a 5-8 record with a 3.71 ERA in 102 innings during his time in the major leagues.
Last season, the left-hander pitched in three games for the New York Mets Triple-A Afilliate, Buffalo.
Herrera was originally drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 45th round (1345th overall) of the 2006 MLB Draft out the University of Mexico.
I was always liked Herrera when he pitched for the Reds and the Mets. He's only 5'8" tall, but has a big arm. It's surprising that he was available and isn't on a big league roster. He's a great addition to the Ducks bullpen.
