Mets Activate Germen From DL, Demote Rice To Vegas

Gonzalez - Germen

Adam Rubin of ESPN NY reports that Scott Rice, was demoted to Vegas after Tuesday’s 6-2 win against the Milwaukee Brewers, leaving Josh Edgin and Dana Eveland as the only left-handers in the bullpen.

Rubin adds that Gonzalez Germen will be activated from the disabled list, where he had been since May 6 with a virus and abscess.

When Rice was given word on his demotion, Marc Carig of Newsday tweeted his response, “I’m obviously not happy. But I understand their decision. I wasn’t getting the job done so they had to make a move.” Rice continued, “I’ll go to Vegas and work my butt off to get back here.”

In 32 relief appearances with the Mets, Rice was 1-2 with a 5.93 ERA in 13.2 innings.
