The way I understand it, assuming the Mets do not play another 14-inning marathon, they’ll likely demote a relief pitcher and promote a position player before leaving Philadelphia.
Right now, they are short on the bench, while having an extra arm in the bullpen, mostly because they were forced to use so many relievers in these extra-inning games the last few days.
I assume relievers Buddy Carlyle or Dana Eveland will be demoted.
It’s also worth noting that Josh Satin is doing really well in Las Vegas, where he’s playing a lot of second base and again working out in the outfield.
