Mets Promote Reliever Sean Henn From Triple-A
The New York Mets announced they have selected the contract of LHP Sean Henn from Triple-A Las Vegas. Henn was 3-5 with a 2.81 ERA (18 ER/57.2 IP) in 52 games with the 51s
Henn, 32, was selected in the 26th round by the New York Yankees in the 2000 MLB draft.
He’s played in the major leagues in parts of five seasons with four different teams (Yankees, San Diego Padres, Minnesota Twins, and Baltimore Orioles). The last time he saw time in the bigs came in 2009 with the Orioles; he put together a 9.00 ERA and 3.33 WHIP in six appearances (3 IP) for the O’s.
In 60 career MLB appearances, Henn is 2-9 with a 7.56 ERA, 2.01 WHIP, 64 walks, and 62 strikeouts in 81 innings pitched.
The announcement of this promotion was surprising to me, and Adam Rubin tried to provide some opinion as to why Henn got the call today:
Not sure precise motivation for timing with Sean Henn, other than Zack Wheeler’s innings are being watched and Dice-K may need relief Sunday

The left-handed reliever has spent all of the 2013 season with Triple-A Las Vegas after spending 2012 with the Seattle Mariners organization in Triple-A Tacoma. He’s performed pretty well in the PCL despite allowing a lot of base runners (1.60 WHIP).
Congratulations to Sean on his promotion, it must feel good after almost four years since getting his last call.
