Oliver Perez will join the Mets Triple-A affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons, for what is expected to be one start.
Adam Rubin expects him to pitch on Friday, so if you’re in the Buffalo area, plan accordingly.
What is expected to happen, says Jerry Manuel, is Perez and Tim Redding share starts. That should be interesting to see be implemented. It’s not that Redding has been bad, but he’s just the weakest part of the rotation.
Maybe it’d be good to get Perez’s .429 AVG and .500 OBP back in the lineup.
