16:42: New York has officially chosen Bostick and appointed Eickhoff to the task of actively opening and 40-man roster room.
15:39: The Mets plan to select the contract for the right-hand man Akeem Bostick ahead of tonight’s match against the Braves, reports Anthony DiComo from MLB.com (Twitter link). The 26-year-old will make his debut in the big league if he gets into a game.
Bostick was another round of the Rangers back in 2013. The Astros acquired him in January 2015, and he spent the next few seasons in the Houston farm system. Bostick, however, never took the big ones with the Astros and was released in 2019. He signed with the Cardinals, but did not officially play up with St. The Louis organization due to last year canceled minor league season.
New York signed Bostick to a minor league deal in May. He has spent the year with Triple-A Syracuse, throwing 37 2/3 innings on 6.21 ERA ball over ten appearances (eight starts). Bostick’s peripherals are not much better, as he has knocked out below the average 16.8% of the butchers facing, while going elevated 13.3% of opponents.
It has not been a banner season for Bostick, but he is at least stretched out. He has worked up to five innings on a couple of starts for Syracuse. As the Mets pitching staff has been hit hard by injuries, New York has been trying to patch things up on the mound in recent days. Jerad Eickhoff was re-signed to start last night’s ball game but did not go well, allowing ten runs in 3 1/3 innings.
