It looks like the Mets will be making another bull pen change this week as it is rumored that Jeremy Hefner will be promoted. If he is promoted, he is most likely going to replace Manny Acosta. Acosta has been a head scratcher with the Mets. At first, he was great. Then he started off last year as a frustration. At the tale end of last year, he was unhittable. This year, he has been mostly been terrible. Anyway, these are Acosta’s numbers with the Mets:

2010: 3-2, 2.95 ERA, 39.2 IP, 2 BS
2011: 4-1, 3.45 ERA, 47.0 IP, 3 BS
2012: 1-2, 10.53 ERA, 19.2 IP, 1 BS

On the flip side, Hefner had a fantastic major league debut where he pitched 3.0 IP just allowing one walk. These are some of his recent minor league numbers:

Career: 49-36, 3.77 ERA, 735.0 IP
2012: 3-2, 2.72 ERA, 46.1 IP

This season Hefner has been really turning it on in the minors, and the Mets could use another spot starter in the pen, since their current one is actually in the pen.

If this move happens, I’m for it. It seems like the right time for change in the Mets pen.
