6 Comments

Earlier this week Mets bullpen catcher Eric Langill was charged with a DUI after crashing into a street sign and flipping his Honda Accord following some drinks at a bowling alley.

Today the Mets suspended him without pay for seven days.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Langill, who spent seven seasons in the minors before becoming the Mets’ bullpen catcher, will also be required to go to counseling.

In a statement the Mets described Langill as “contrite and very apologetic about Sunday night’s incident.”
