This is extremely positive news for the Mets, who are dealing with a very unhealthy pitching staff at the moment.
Relievers Robert Gsellman (lat strain) and Jeurys Familia (right hip impingement) are on the injured list. It was additionally learned this week Joey Lucchesi would need to undergo Tommy John surgery due to a torn UCL in his throwing elbow.
Noah Syndergaard (2020 torn UCL followed by right elbow inflammation) and Carlos Carrasco (torn right hamstring) have also yet to make appearances for the major league club in 2021.
In response to the numerous injuries, the Mets decided to promote right-hander Tylor Megill from Triple-A Syracuse. Megill will be making his major league debut against the Braves Wednesday night at Citi Field (7:10 p.m. ET).
The 25-year-old recorded a 3.77 ERA through three starts with Triple-A Syracuse this season prior to the call-up. He’s additionally started five games for Double-A Binghamton in 2021, piecing together a 2-1 record with a 3.12 ERA at that level.
