Kyle Dowdy bails out Shelby Miller in win vs. Angels, but this trend with Rangers starters isn't going to cut it all season

Kyle Dowdy bails out Shelby Miller in win vs. Angels, but this trend with Rangers starters isn't going to cut it all season

The Rangers will cruise into the 1/10th mark of the season Tuesday. They will do it with a winning record at 8-7. Hey, small victories, right?They won because big deficits don't seem to faze this team, because Joey Gallo broke from his week-long slump and because the Angels pitching is more challenged than their own. Again, small victories, right?There were a few things worth nothing beyond Gallo's 436-foot homer that left the bat at 115 mph. Stuff like:Dowdy steps up in relief: Kyle Dowdy bailed out Shelby Miller with 2.1 innings of relief and picked up his first major league win. Dowdy, a...

Mets recall Corey Oswalt, option Tim Peterson to Triple-A

Mets recall Corey Oswalt, option Tim Peterson to Triple-A

Oswalt will wear uniform #55, the same number he wore during his big league stint last season. Ahead of tonight’s game, the Mets have announced that they have recalled Corey Oswalt from Triple-A Syracuse and optioned Tim Peterson. Peterson was able to win a job as the last man out of the bullpen on the back of his strong spring training performance, beating out Hector Santiago, Kyle Dowdy, Ryan O’Rourke, and Tyler Bashlor, among others. However, with the Mets not getting very much length from their starting pitching, the bullpen has been taxed early, so it is not a surprise that they...

Mets Rule 5 pick Kyle Dowdy claimed on waivers by Rangers

Mets Rule 5 pick Kyle Dowdy claimed on waivers by Rangers

Dowdy’s brief tenure with the Mets has come to an end. Kyle Dowdy, the 26-year-old right-handed pitcher the Mets took in the Rule 5 draft early in the offseason, has been claimed on waivers by the Texas Rangers. Dowdy pitched 11.1 innings for the Mets in spring training this year and had a 5.56 ERA with seven strikeouts and seven walks in his time in the Grapefruit League. Heading into the season, Dowdy figured to have a shot at making the Opening Day roster since the Mets would have needed to keep him in the big leagues all year in order to control him beyond the 2019 season. A starter...

Mets option Bashlor, Peterson, and Zamora to minor league camp

Mets option Bashlor, Peterson, and Zamora to minor league camp

The final bullpen spot appears to be down to Dowdy, O’Rourke, and Santiago. The New York Mets have optioned relievers Tyler Bashlor, Tim Peterson, and Daniel Zamora to minor league camp this morning, leaving the team with 36 players left at the big league camp. The three players cut today were competing to earn a spot in the bullpen. With Edwin Diaz, Jeurys Familia, Justin Wilson, Seth Lugo, and Robert Gsellman guaranteed to make the Opening Day roster, and with Luis Avilan all but a virtual lock at this point, the team has one opening left to fill. Kyle Dowdy, Ryan O’Rourke, and Hector...
