Is Adam Bostick the New York Mets' Next Starting Pitcher?

Lastings MilledgeAnalyst IApril 11, 2008

After two starts in AAA, New York Mets prospect Adam Bostick is 1-0 with an ERA of 2.25. He has 12 strikeouts in 12 innings.


Bostick had a very decent year last year in AAA New Orleans going 6-7 with a 5.66 ERA, 91 strikeouts, and 45 walks in 21 games. Bostick also had a strong fall and winter. He pitched in the Arizona Fall League going 2-0, with a 2.74 ERA with 23 strikeouts in 6 games.

The Mets acquired left-hander Adam Bostick along with lefty Jason Vargas in November of 2006 in exchange for right-handed relievers Henry Owens and Matt Lindstrom. So far, the trade has favored the Marlins.


However, if the Mets have problems in the rotation and newly signed Claudio Vargas does not pitch well, Bostick is one of the best candidates in the farm system to take a spot on the Mets rotation.
