And I need it now.
For some reason, I just have a feeling that Eddie Kunz will soon be promoted from AA Binghamton. The Mets need a big, burly arm in the bullpen, and this guy fits that role to a T.
Kunz, only 22 years old, is currently closing for the B-Mets. He's notched 26 saves in 42 games. This season, through 46 IP, Kunz is sporting a 2.93 ERA. He's allowed 38 hits, and struggled with walks, handing out 23 free passes. Kunz has also notched 39 strikeouts in that same span.
Standing at 6' 5", and weighing 265 pounds, this righty could take Carlos Muniz's spot on the roster. It'd be nice to give this guy a little bit of major league seasoning, and see what the Mets hopeful future closer has to offer. Kunz is also riding a hot streak, as he hasn't allowed a run in all of July.
Call him up, and quick. If the Mets can ride this hot streak, they can log innings under this guy's belt, benefit from some quality pitching out of the bullpen, and save their other arms for another time. That's a win-win-win situation. If he struggles, just send him back to Binghamton. It's as easy as that.
I want Kunz, and I want him now.
