The Mets have made yet another roster move this week.
Earlier in the day, Fossum pitched two-and-two-thirds innings against the Nationals, while giving up one earned run and striking out two batters. However, Fossum was far from dominant, as he surrendered three hits and allowed all runners to score.
Ken Takahashi will take over Fossum's role as the secondary left-handed reliever.
Takahashi has posted some impressive numbers for the Bisons this season. In eleven-and-two-thirds innings of work, Takahashi has given up just one earned run and struck out nine batters.
It should be noted that Takahashi is no youngster (he is 40-years-old), but should be useful—many major league hitters have yet to see his stuff.
