The New York Mets announced they have selected the contract of LHP Sean Henn from Triple-A Las Vegas. Henn was 3-5 with a 2.81 ERA (18 ER/57.2 IP) in 52 games with the 51s Henn, 32, was selected in the 26th round by the New York Yankees in the 2000 MLB draft. He’s played in the major leagues in parts of five seasons with four different teams (Yankees, San Diego Padres, Minnesota Twins, and Baltimore Orioles). The last time he saw time in the bigs came in 2009 with the Orioles; he put together a 9.00 ERA and 3.33 WHIP in six appearances (3 IP) for the O’s. In 60 career MLB appearances, Henn is 2-9 with a 7.56 ERA, 2.01 WHIP, 64 walks, and 62 strikeouts in 81 innings pitched. The announcement of this promotion was surprising to me, and Adam Rubin tried to provide some opinion as to why Henn got the call today: Not sure precise motivation for timing with Sean Henn, other than Zack Wheeler’s innings are being watched and Dice-K may need relief Sunday — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) September
