Mets Recall Elmer Dessens

To replace Jon Niese on the roster, the Mets have recalled Elmer Dessens from Triple-A Buffalo. Dessens last pitched for the Mets on July 19 before being designated for assignment. He then accepted an assignment to Buffalo.

He’s pitched in 9 games this season with the Mets to a 3.65 ERA. In 12.1 innings he’s given up 5 earned runs.

Expect Dessens to get the long man job with Tim Redding getting a spot start replacing Mike Pelfrey on Saturday in San Diego.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
