The hits just keep on coming.
And I mean that literally.
Avilan was a minor league signing this offseason, who earned a spot on the opening day roster with a terrific spring. Once the regular season began, Avilan was awful, posting a 9.90 ERA.
In his defense, Mickey Callaway started to use him as a multi inning reliever for some reason, to disastrous results. His career statistics will tell you he is not at all effective when used for multiple innings, but Mickey gon’ Mickey.
Chris Flexen returns to the Mets with his 8.59 ERA.
Say a prayer.
