White Sox Claim Phil Humber

The White Sox picked up Phil Humber today. Ben Nicholson-Smith from MLB Trade Rumors talks about Humber:

Humber posted a 4.15 ERA in 21 2/3 big league innings this year. As short as that stint was, it was the most the 28-year-old has ever pitched in the big leagues. The former first rounder was once considered a top prospect and the Mets sent him to Minnesota in the Johan Santana deal. In 664 1/3 minor league innings, he has a 4.48 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9.

Another example of how the mighty have fallen. Humber was one of the key pieces in the Santana trade. Now he is just there for the taking.
