My friends the Mets sent over some notes.
RHP Jared Hughes has been reinstated from the IL and added to the team’s 30-man active roster. He will be #35 on the field and #1 in your hearts. @Mediagoon is on his way to Modell’s to buy a jersey.
RHP Franklyn Kilome has been optioned to the team’s Alternate Training Site. Thanks for sucking it up last night, now go hang out in Brooklyn.
INF Jed Lowrie has been transferred to the 45-day IL.
The Mets rank 29th in the majors with a 6.81 bullpen ERA after nine games…Last year, the Mets pen ranked 26th in the majors with a 4.99 ERA…The pen’s 4.99 ERA was the highest in franchise history…Mets relievers are tied for first in the majors with three losses this season and are third in the majors with three blown saves…The pen is fourth in the majors allowing eight homers.
The Next Koosman, David Peterson is looking to become the fifth pitcher in Mets history who has started and won his first two major league games…Steven Matz was the last to do so in 2015…The others are Dick Selma (1965), Gary Gentry (1969) and Mike Pelfrey (2006)…There are 49 southpaws in the modern era who have made the start and earned the win in each of their first two major league appearances…Today, Peterson aims to be the 50th to join that club…Only 31 pitchers since 1900 have started and won each of their first two big league games with each of those games coming on the road and only 10 lefties have done so.
Pete Alonso | INF | .200, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 0 SB
Last Game: 1-5, 2 K
Road Trip: .125 (1-8), 2 R, RBI, 2 BB, 3 K
Also the Braves are not cheating!!! Nothing to see here.
