Those of you reading this might say “Who is Cody Satterwhite?!?!?”. Well, that’s what I said today when I was looking at the Mets bullpen options. It all started when my good friend Brian P. Mangan was complaining about the Mets bullpen.
I then thought, oh no, is this true? Edgin is down with Tommy John, Parnell isn’t doing anything at the moment, and I have a feeling we may not see him until Memorial Day. Now, news has come out that Vic Black has been shut down with a painful elbow, and that Collins is worried. From this, I conclude that we won’t see Black until the weather gets into the 80’s.
I analyzed the Mets bullpen options, I really am not impressed with Montero, Gilmartin has been abysmal, then again, so has every other lefty. I simply did not like the premise of having Montero and Gilmartin in a decimated bullpen. Erik Goeddel could be a possibility, but his ERA has been in the 5.00+ the last two years, in AA/AAA, so I’m going to have to pass. Satterwhite pitched to a 2.33 ERA in AA Binghamton. More than respectable, not to mention his three flawless outings so far this Spring. Satterwhite has a SO/9 of 9.8, and a WHIP of 1.103. Satterwhite only gave up 3 home runs in 2014, and he has great control. If I was at the helm, Satterwhite would head north with the Mets.
