Possible Option for the New York Mets: Adam Bostick

Lastings MilledgeAnalyst IApril 11, 2008

After having 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 (20 starts, 97 innings), Bostick had a strong fall and winter.

He pitched in the Arizona Fall League going 2-0, with a 2.74 ERA, 23 strikeouts in six 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, but if there are problems in the rotation and newly signed Claudio Vargas does not pitch well, then Bostick is one of the best candidates in the farm system to take a spot on the Mets rotation.
