The New York Mets have officially recalled right-handed relief pitcher Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas, the club announced on Sunday evening. Robles was previously shipped to Triple-A Las Vegas back on May 23 upon struggling mightily in relief for the National League East ball club.
In what has become a corresponding roster move, the Mets have also elected to option fellow right-handed relief pitcher Chasen Bradford down to the same minor league affiliate.
The 26-year-old Robles is currently in the midst of his third major league season, all of which have come as a member of the Mets. As a result of his 2017 campaign thus far, the right-hander has produced a 6.23 ERA over the course of 21 appearances and 21.2 innings of work in all. Robles has posted a 4-1 record, five holds, one blown save and 23 strikeouts against 13 walks as well.
For his big league career, the potentially prolific relief pitcher has notched a 3.93 ERA alongside a 14-8 record, one save, 30 holds, seven blown saves and 169 strikeouts against 67 walks. While making 146 career regular-season relief appearances as it stands today, he has amassed a total of 153.1 innings of work atop the highest level.
Entering play on Monday evening against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Mets will be sporting a disappointing 41-48 record. As a result, New York currently sits in third place in the pedestrian National League East Division while finding themselves behind both the first-place Washington Nationals and second-place Atlanta Braves.
