The Mets have pruchased the contract of Casey Fossum from Triple-A Buffalo, according to Brendan Prunty of NJ.com.
Fossum, a lefty, will likely enter the bullpen to give the team another southpaw as they’re set to face a lefthanded dominant St. Louis club in the coming days.
I feel bad for Figueroa, who spun some magic last season with the Mets before coming back down to earth. He put together a very nice spring training and World Baseball Classic, and I was slightly surprised he didn’t make the team when they came north.
I figured Figueroa would stick in the bullpen after making the spot start for Mike Pelfrey, giving the Mets a versatile arm for long relief or multiple innings.
