The New York Mets made a couple of roster moves before Wednesday’s series finale against the San Franciso Giants at Oracle Park.
The team recalled starting pitcher Thomas Szapucki and optioned reliever Stephen Nogosek to Triple-A Syracuse.
Szapucki is scheduled to start Wednesday’s game. Over his seven starts at Syracuse this season, the left-hander has maxed out at five innings and has turned in a 2.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 23.1 K-BB%.
Nogosek was the odd-man-out because he tossed 2.2 scoreless innings on Tuesday in the Mets’ 12-11 loss. Overall, Nogosek has been solid, tossing 5.2 scoreless innings.
