Mets call up Gerson Bautista, option Luis Guillorme to Triple-A Las Vegas

The Mets add some much needed depth to their bullpen

MLB: New York Mets-Media Day Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Mets have called Gerson Bautista up from Triple-A Las Vegas to add some depth to a bullpen that has had a very strenuous week. In a corresponding move, the Mets have optioned infielder Luis Guillorme.

Bautista has had two previous stints with the Mets, each one lasting only about a week before he was sent back to the minors. In his time with the big league club, he has made five appearances, going 4.1 innings and giving up 6 earned runs on eight hits. On only one occasion was Bautista able to escape the game without giving up a run. In the minors this season he is 2-1 with a 5.61 ERA over 25.2 innings across Double-A and Triple-A.

Guillorme had been with the Mets since May 9th, and has hit .172/.250/.207, though he was primarily regarded for his defense. However a very bad defensive game yesterday where Guillorme committed two costly errors that quite possibly cost the Mets the game could have triggered the move. He will be sent back down to Triple-A Las Vegas.
