Kilome gives the Mets an arm, but Guillorme has been very good this year.

The Mets have activated right-handed pitcher Franklyn Kilome from the injured list and optioned infielder Luis Guillorme to the team’s alternate training site in Brooklyn. The move gives the Mets an extra arm after back-to-back nights in which Jacob deGrom and Seth Lugo threw a total of 3.2 innings over the course of two starts, but it costs the Mets a bat that had been really good in this shortened season.

In ten innings at the major league level, all of which have taken place this year with the Mets, Kilome has a 7.20 ERA and 7.00 FIP thanks to a bad walk rate and a very bad home run rate.

Guillorme has been fantastic this year in limited playing time, as he’s hit .347/.431/.429 with a 143 wRC+ in 58 plate appearances. With the Mets’ abundance of good-hitting position players, though, his playing time has been very limited recently. Given the time left in the regular season, there would need to be an injury on the Mets’ active roster to recall Guillorme this year.
