There were a couple of big season debuts for the Mets today: Oliver Perez made his first start of the season and Jose Reyes returned from the disabled list. It’s still hard to believe that it’s been nearly a year since Reyes played in a game.
Perez looked just like he has over the last few seasons. His pitches were all over the place while occasionally displaying strikeout ability. Here’s the breakdown of the game:
- The Good– Reyes came back and went 1 for 4, the bullpen had 3.1 innings scoreless, Jeff Francouer went 2 for 4 (.444 on the season)
- The Bad – Willie Harris robbed the Mets again closing out the game on a diving catch of a line drive by Rod Barajas
- The Ugly– Perez gave up 4 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks in 5.2 IP, David Wright made his second error in five games
