Kiko the Jams

94While we wait for the final peices to fall into place for the big move, we noticed Kiko Calero has been signed to a minor league deal and outfitted in No. 94. He threw a scoreless but shaky inning today. You probably know this already but the Mets got permission to back out of the waiver deal they’d made with the Athletics for Jay Marshall, who was previously assigned 94 (and before that, 47) but never made it to camp as a result of an injury.

Like Marshall, Calero is an ex-Oakland reliever (also a cursed former Cardinal and Marlin) but I like that he’s got more whiffs than inningsand a pretty good careeer ERA, with the caveat that all relievers are crazy crapshoots, especially middling, sometimes injured veteran ones.

    Takahashi

    Have you guys noticed what Hisanori Takahashi’s been doing? Watching him toss 3 scoreless 1-hit innings vs the Tigers Saturday made me wonder if they’ll give him a shot in the rotation…

    Jerry professes to like him

    Jerry professes to like him too, saying something to the effect of “If I’m taking the best 11 with me to NY, hes one of them.”
    You’re right he looks like he knows what he’s doing, which makes you wonder whether they’ll keep him as a starter in AAA “just in case”

    Why not The Show?

    The way they’ve been using him for multiple innings at a time makes me think they might make him the 5th starter right out of the box…he was an experienced starter in Japan, I think…
