Lets meet the pitchers the Mets sent to the Arizona Fall League this year.

Teams can use the AFL for a number of reasons including as:?finishing school for top prospects, preparation for the transition to a higher level, either AA or AAA, as extra-playing time for a guy who was injured during the season or as an extra audition for a spot on the team?s 40-man roster.

I covered the position players in some depth here?when the rosters were announced, but seem to have skipped the pitchers. ?Anyway, the four pitchers are RHP Ryan Fraser, LHP Chase Huchingson, LHP Adam Kolarek and RHP Greg Peavey. None of the quartet made my Mets' preseason Top 41 Prospects list, and all are longshots to make this year's list.

1. Jenrry Mejia is headed back to the Buffalo Bisons rotation. He's now scheduled to start Monday. In 16 relief outings with the Bisons, he have up 27 his over 21.1 innings for an opponents' batting average of .303 and a K/BB ratio of 1.1 (10 K/9 BB). He simply was not pitching well in the role.

There's an interesting degree of double-talk from the Mets about the shift back and forth. In June, with three AAA starts to his credit, when he was moved from the Bisons rotation to the bullpen, the idea was that he would be ready to help the big league team in 2012. Now, he's going to start for a month as the team's slide has lessened the demand for immediate bullpen help.

SS Wilfredo Tovar: 2-4, 2B, BB, R. ?Recently 20, the defensive whiz is hitting .301/.384/.397 in 19 games in August and .242/.311/.300 for the year. ?He's become more selective as the year has gone on with 11 and 10 walks in July and August respectively, his only two months in double-figures this year.
