The Mets have designated Claudio Vargas for assignment and called up Carlos Muniz for his spot on the roster.
While Vargas had been fairly effective as a long relief man, he surrendered four runs in two innings last night against the Mariners.
Muniz, who had a much lower ERA at the beginning of the year, is now sporting a 3.18 ERA in 28 1-3 innings pitched.
Muniz is 2008's Heath Bell and Royce Ring. Up and down, up and down. Tony Armas Jr. must be wondering what else he must do to get the call.
