Sorry, I kid Dice-K because I’m a kidder. He’s actually been quite useful in Triple-A this year and it makes sense that the Mets would want him to eat some innings down the stretch so as to give Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler some rest.
He started 19 games with a 3.92 ERA and 95/39 K/BB ratio in 103 innings for the Columbus Clippers. That could play in the waning days of the Mets season.
