After two miserable starts for Triple-A Buffalo, the Mets have parted ways with Freddy Garcia. He was 0-2 with a 8.18 ERA.
Garcia signed with the Mets this off-season after auditioning for a handful of teams as he attempts to recover from surgery. His contract was said to be worth up to $8 million if all his incentives were met.
Garcia, though, does not plan to retire, according to his agent. But he’s mulling it.
The Mets are slim at pitching options and with the recent struggles of the starting rotation, it may be time to worry. They have a handful of younger guys who just aren’t ready for the big show, but not much else.
It may be time to call up Pedro Martinez just to see how he’s doing.
