Mets designate Gonzalez Germen for assignment

To make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder John Mayberry Jr. the Mets have designated for assignment right-hander Gonzalez Germen.

Germen spent parts of the past two seasons in the Mets’ bullpen, posting a combined 4.31 ERA with 64 strikeouts in 65 innings. However, he also walked 4.2 batters per nine innings and is 27 years old.

He should latch on somewhere as a useful middle reliever and it’s a little surprising that the Mets were willing to give up on him for nothing so soon.
