Mets Promote LHP Garrett Olson
Following the news that Tim Byrdak has a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder, the Mets announced that Garrett Olson will be recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday. He will be added to the team’s active roster before today’s game against the Marlins.
In 25 appearances for Triple-A Buffalo this year, Olson has made 21 starts and has a 4.56 ERA in 108.2 innings pitched. Left-handed hitters have hit .270 against him in 33 1/3 innings against them this season.
With the loss of Byrdak for the season,Terry Collins had said he wanted a second southpaw in the pen along with Josh Edgin.
The Mets have not yet announced the corresponding roster move to make room for Olson on the active roster, but Elvin Ramirez appears to be the player on the bubble.
