The Mets have designated right-handed relief pitcher Tyler Bashlor for assignment, a move that makes room for left-handed starting pitcher David Peterson—who is set to make his major league debut as the team’s starter at Fenway Park tonight—on both the 30-man active roster and the organization’s 40-man roster.
Drafted by the Mets in the 11th round of the amateur draft back in 2013, Bashlor worked his way up through the minor league ranks and made his major league debut in 2018. That year, he pitched 32.0 innings for the Mets with 4.22 ERA and 5.44 FIP. He logged 22.0 innings at the major league level last year and had a 6.95 ERA and 7.26 FIP in that time.
Bashlor had been called up to the Mets’ active roster just yesterday to take the place of Corey Oswalt, who was optioned to the Mets’ alternate site following a rough four-inning appearance on Sunday night against the Braves.
