Mets announces left-handers Anthony Banda Has been assigned, and right-handed Achim Bostic Has been completely beaten to Triple-A. (Bostic was used by the DFA yesterday as part of the Mets’ roster reshuffle on the deadline.) These moves opened up some 40-man roster space for yesterday’s two details. Big deal With the Cubs- Javier Baez Join the active list in New York, and right Trevor Williams Selected as Triple-A.
The Giants traded Banda to the Mets in early July, and Banda may only last a month in his latest organization. Banda’s contract was selected by New York on July 19, and he scored 7.36 in the team’s 5 appearances and 7 1/3 innings.
Tommy John’s surgery and other injuries hindered Banda’s career, and Banda attracted attention as a rookie while working at the Brewers, Diamondbacks, and Light Farm Systems.This potential has led to Banda being included in two notable deals-just seven years ago today, the brewer sent Banda and Mickey Hannig To D’Backs Geraldo PalaAnd then he was transferred to the light as part Three-team big deal February 2018. At the major league level, Banda has only shot 58 2/3 innings since the start of the 2017 season, with an ERA of 6.14.
