Mets Make Some Roster Moves To Replace Putz
After placing J.J. Putz on the disabled list today, the Mets called up right-handed reliever Fernando Nieve from Triple-A Buffalo and claimed lefty reliever Pat Misch off waivers from the San Francisco Giants.
Nieve will take Putz’s spot on the roster and in the bullpen, while Misch was immediately assigned to Buffalo.
To make room for Misch on the 40-man roster, the Mets moved rehabbing reliever Billy Wagner to the 60-day DL.
Nieve signed as a non-drafted free agent in May 1999 and made his Major League debut in 2006. He made a total of 51 appearances in the big leagues over parts of the ’06 and ’08 seasons, compiling a 3-4 record and a 4.63 ERA.
Nieve was 3-0 for Class-AAA Buffalo in five starts, and in 24.1 innings pitched he had a 3.75 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.
Before being promoted to Buffalo, he pitched with Class-AA Binghamton where he had a 5.00 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.
He has a solid strikeout per inning ratio of over 9, but tends to walk a lot of batters.
