Mets claim right-handed pitcher Jason Standridge on waivers from the Cincinnati Reds

Jason Standridge, a 6-4, 245-pound righthanded relief pitcher, who was 1-1 with a 4.82 ERA in 21 games with the Cincinnati Reds last year, was claimed on waivers today by the New York Mets. He was added to the 40-man roster and invited to spring training.

Standridge, a former first round pick of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 1997, began the 2006 season with Louisville (AAA) of the International League. He had his contract purchased on June 19th and was placed on the Disabled List on August 7th with back spasms, but was able to rejoin Cincinnati in September. Jason, a native of Birmingham, AL, was 2-2 with a 2.93 ERA in 37 games at Triple-A.
