Eric Goeddel appears to be heading to the disabled list, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. In his place, the Mets have brought back Danny Muno.  Puma mentioned in a follow-up tweet that Goeddel has been diagnosed with an elbow strain after suffering from elbow soreness last night. The 26-year-old righty was having a good 2015 campaign. In 23 innings, Goeddel had a 1.96 ERA to go with a 9 K/9 rate.

For Muno, it has been a rough start to his major league career. In 11 games with the Mets, Muno has only been able to get two hits in 20 at-bats. During his time with Las Vegas this year, Muno has looked like a decent hitter with a .269 batting average to go along with a .347 on-base percentage.  It is that on-base percentage that makes him so attractive to the Mets front office.

In five minor league seasons, he has sported a career .392 on-base percentage. It hasn't translated to big league success, as he only has a .182 OBP in the majors. It is a small sample size and with the state of the Mets infield, Muno is sure to get more at-bats the longer he stays up in Flushing.
