Via Adam Rubin and his Surfing The Mets blog, the Mets are expected to call up Tobi Stoner, the 24 year old right-handed starter. Stoner most recently pitched in AAA for the Buffalo Bisons, going 7-7 with a 3.96 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in 16 starts.
Tobi was the Mets’ 16th round draft pick (484th overall) in the 2006 amateur draft and has risen through the minors at around an A level per year since.
Barring (multiple?) injuries to the starting rotation, Stoner will likely only be used as a spot-reliever.
I accidentally typed “Tobi Stoner to Joint the Mets” as the title the first time through…true story.
