Mets acquire Brooks Pounders from Indians, option Tim Peterson to Triple-A, call up Chris Flexen

Pounders hasn’t been successful in the majors yet. The Mets have acquired right-handed pitcher Brooks Pounders from the Indians, and they’ve optioned fellow right-handed pitcher Tim Peterson back to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Pounders on the active roster tonight.

And for the past few days, the Mets had hesitated to put him back on the injured list, even though he wasn’t able to play. Cano’s season has gotten off to a rough start, as he’s hit just .238/.284/.366 with...

Mets relievers Tim Peterson, Paul Sewald clear waivers

The right-handed pitchers have been outrighted to Syracuse. As the Mets have churned through roster spots recently, the team designated Tim Peterson and Paul Sewald for assignment, but both pitchers have cleared waivers and have been outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse. In just 6.1 major league innings so far this year, Peterson has a 2.84 ERA despite having walked six batters and struck out just three. He had a 6.18 ERA out of the Mets’ bullpen in 27.2 major league innings last year, though his strikeout and walk rates were decent while he struggled with allowing home runs in those...
