Peyton Battenfield is his name, and he’s up for Jeff Brigham. The Mets acquired this guy from Cleveland on a waiver claim earlie rthis month. He’d gone 0-5, 5.19 for the Guardians. The Met roster lists Battenfield in No. 60, which was freed up when Ronny Mauricio took 10 upon his callup.
This weekend saw the Mets assured of having a losing record and shut out of the playoffs even though it seems like they’re playing as well as they have all year. Soon it’ll be hot stove under a new baseball poobah David Stearns.
