Hector Noesi traded to Texas Rangers

Al Bello

Noesi has been acquired by the Texas Rangers for a PTBNL or cash.

UPDATE: The Rangers will in fact send cash to the Mariners for Noesi rather than a PTBNL, per Jon Heyman.

What a lot of people ultimately thought would happen is official now, as the Texas Rangers are going to be the team that attempts to fix pitcher Hector Noesi.

After coming over from the New York Yankees in the horrendous Michael Pineda/Jesus Montero trade, Noesi pitched for the Mariners over the course of three seasons before he was DFA'd to make room for Dominic Leone after just two unsuccessful outing for the M's this season. Over the course of his three years here, Noesi appeared in 36 games compiling a -0.7 WAR in 135 innings pitched. Even though he flashed tremendous stuff at times, he had horrible command and gave up a lot of fly balls as a result.

Rangers' pitching coach Mike Maddux is going to have a project on his hands. But if he can get Noesi to stop throwing fastballs right down Broadway on 0-2 counts, he might be able to turn him into something useful. He has a lot of promise for a 27-year-old, and maybe all he needed was a change of scenery or a new coach to put his problems behind him. I suppose we'll find out.

The good news for the M's here is:

In all seriousness, I wish Noesi the best in his new city, even though he's now playing for a division rival. Maybe he'll dominate the other teams in the division and suck against the Mariners, I dunno.
