Mets Put Blevins on Bereavement List, Recall Sewald

The New York Mets recalled RHP Paul Sewald from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League and placed LHP Jerry Blevins on the Bereavement List. The listed reason was for his grandmother.

Sewald will wear #51 and will be available for tonight’s game. He is 0-4 with a 4.85 ERA (21 earned runs/39.0 innings) in 26 games with the Mets this season.

Sewald went 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA (one earned run/5.0 innings) in four games with the 51s after he was optioned for the first time on June 22.

Blevins, free agent after the season, is 1-1 this season with a 4.95 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and has walked 12 batters and struck out only 18 in 20.2 innings. He has been better of late with a 3.24 ERA in his last 8.1 innings since the start of June.
