Mets add Igarashi from Triple-A after K-Rod deal
NEW YORK (AP)
The Mets made the move before Friday night's game against Philadelphia. Rodriguez was sent to the Brewers right after the All-Star game Tuesday night.
Igarashi was 2-1 with a 4.65 ERA in 15 games for the Mets earlier this season. He was recalled from Buffalo, where he was 0-1 with five saves and an 0.87 ERA.
Igarashi had not allowed a run in Triple-A during his last 13 appearances, covering 19 1-3 innings. Mets manager Terry Collins said Igarashi had gotten a better feel for his splitter over the last two months in the minors.
