News: Hello, Carlos Muniz

At his blog for the Daily News, Adam Rubin writes that 26–year-old RHP Carlos Muniz will join the Mets for tonight’s game in Miami.

Muniz was 2-4 with a 2.45 ERA with 23 saves in 44 games for Double-A Binghamton, during which right-handed batters hit .191 against him, while lefties hit .213.

In three appearances during the Triple-A playoffs, Muniz allowed no runs and four hits while striking out four in 5.2 innings.

On The MetsBlog Podcast, B’Mets beat-writer Brian Moritz had the following to say about Muniz last month…

“He’s got a good fastball, and good movement on his pitches.  He’s a very confident late-game pitcher…He hasn’t been as overpowering as say Henry Owens was here last year, but for about a two-month span he was about as good of a closer as there was in the Eastern League.”

…might as well…people kept yelling for Willie Collazo to be promoted, but he has allowed four runs and 13 base runners in just five innings…so, let’s give muniz a shot
