Today’s Mets notes indicated that LHP Daniel Herrera will join the team tonight and will wear #19.
Herrera, 26, was acquired yesterday as one of the two players to be named later as part of the deal that sent Francisco Rodriguez to the Milwaukee Brewers on July 12.
The left-hander appeared in two games with the Brewers this season after he was claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds on May 23, 2011.
He was 1-4 with a 2.20 ERA (15 earned runs/61.1 innings), three saves and 54 strikeouts in 46 combined games this season between Louisville (AAA) of the International League and Nashville (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League.
The 5-6, 165-pounder went 1-3 with a 3.91 ERA (10 earned runs/23.0 innings) in 36 games with the Reds in 2010. The Odessa, TX native appeared in 70 games as a rookie with the Reds in 2009, going 4-4 with a 3.06 ERA (21 earned runs/61.2 innings).
Herrera is 5-7 with a 3.94 ERA (41 earned runs/93.2 innings) in 115 major league games with the Reds and Brewers. He has allowed 110 hits, issued 34 walks and notched 66 strikeouts.
