Pat Misch Ready For 2010 Mets Debut On Saturday
Misch has a 3.23 ERA with the Bisons this season and is in line for his 11th win if Buffalo holds a lead tonight.
Adding Misch to the rotation would send left hander Hisanori Takahashi back to the bullpen, and maybe get an opportunity to be the teams setup man. Tonight, Takahashi looked great while pitching a perfect 8th inning against the Rockies.
Jerry Manuel has already announced that Takahashi would not make his Saturday start, further strengthening the possibility that Misch will get the start and make his 2010 Mets debut.
Misch produced his first major league win last Sept. 3 at Colorado, while pairing with Josh Thole in the catcher’s major league debut. Later that month, Misch’s other major league highlight occurred. Misch, who turns 29 in two weeks, shut out the Florida Marlins on Sept. 27 at Miami.
We’ve been calling for Misch to be promoted for a couple of months here on MMO, most recently on August 4th.
I don’t understand why the Mets took so long to finally give him a shot, but better late than never, right?
