Mets to look at Darin Gorski in bullpen role

Darin Gorski 1 polaroidAccording to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Sandy Alderson said the Mets intend to look at LHP Darin Gorski for a possible bullpen role.

Gorski, 25, went 9-8 with a 4.00 ERA in 25 games and 24 starts for Double-A Binghamton in 2012, allowing 128 hits and 50 walks with 118 strikeouts in 139 2/3 innings.

He held left-handed hitters to a .219 average last season.

Gorski is a tall and lanky kid and, while he isn’t overpowering, his height advantage makes his landing spot closer than that of other pitchers with similar stuff, resulting in his velocity appearing to be better than it really is. He also has a lot of torque in his arm, and good movement on all of his pitches, which makes him that much more deceptive from the left side. He told me last year the key to his rise through the system has been better overall command of his fastball thanks to the help from Phil Regan, who is the pitching coach at St. Lucie. Terry Collins was really excited about him last year.
