Within 24 hours on Monday, Aaron Heilman 48 was recalled, rocked and summarily banished to Norfolk. In his place the Mets recalled Tides closer Heath Bell,who throws hard and fashioned attractive numbers in AAA (67 K’s in 53.2 IP). He wears No. 19. Here’s hoping this Bell tolls clearer than his Met predecessors Gus 3, Derek 16 and Jay 44.
To make room for Bell on the 40-man roster, the Mets moved Orber Moreno 49 to the 60-day disabled list. Heilman’s recall sent Matt Ginter 13 back to Norfolk, where he remains.
