Found July 24, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
Following last night’s 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals, reliever Pedro Beato was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo by the Mets. The Mets needed a roster spot for the activation of Matt Harvey, who will start Thursday in Arizona. Before the game, comments by Sandy Alderson led many to believe that Lucas Duda was on the verge of being sent to Buffalo. But Beato’s nightmarish performance caused the Mets to change the plan. It was the second time in a week that Beato cost the Mets a game. Last Tuesday Beato uncorked a game-ending bases-loaded wild pitch in another 10th inning loss to the Nationals. In seven games with the Mets this season, Beato posted a 10.38 ERA, having allowed five earned runs in 4 1/3 innings.
