Mets Start Reshaping the Landscape, Let Go Pat Misch and Mike O'Connor


Pat Misch
With the regular season ending only days ago, the first to go are the Minor League free agents.

For the Mets, the fleeing few have been Pat Misch and Mike O’Connor.

Misch had been with the Mets since 2009, claimed off waivers from the San Francisco Giants. The lefty enjoyed two respectable campaigns with the Mets, owning a 4.00 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and a 2.00 K/BB in 96.6 innings from 2009 to 2010. However, Misch couldn’t find a fit with the team in 2011, leading to multiple DFA’s and a forgettable 10.29 ERA, 2.14 WHIP, and 1.25 K/BB in just 7 innings.

Mike O’Connor was first signed by the Mets in 2010, but never pitched above Triple-A. But in 2011, the 30 year-old lefty was called-up on May 7, and pitched well for the Mets–posting a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 2.67 K/BB. Despite his success at the Major League level, O’Connor only posted a 5.22 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 3.47 K/BB in 60.3 Minor League innings.

It’s possible either or both pitchers can still be re-signed, but it’s fair to say both are very replaceable.

Mets Promote Acosta, O'Connor sent down to Buffalo


The New York Mets have promoted right-handed reliever Manny Acosta from Triple-A Buffalo.

The Mets selected his contract and he was to be available for Friday night's game against Atlanta.

The 30-year-old Acosta was 1-0 with four saves and a 1.77 ERA in 20 games at Buffalo. Last year with the Mets, he was 3-2 with a 2.95 ERA in 41 games.

Left-handed reliever Mike O'Connor was optioned by the Mets to Triple-A after Thursday's game. The Mets also transferred righty Chris Young to the 60-Day disabled list.
