Danny Abriano, SNY.tv | Twitter | Aside from Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler, and Steven Matz, the Mets have one spot in their starting rotation that has been taken up by a mix of Jason Vargas, Corey Oswalt, and others this season.
And even though Vargas has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this year, dealt with multiple injuries, and shuffled between the bullpen and rotation, he'll likely have a regular spot in the rotation down the stretch instead of Oswalt. But Oswalt does have a fan in Mickey Callaway.
"I'd like to see him pitch as much as possible," Callaway said over the weekend. "I think what we need to focus on is that he's pitching every fifth day, and it doesn't have to be here. We have to get him in a routine to see what he can do because if he does the right things, he's got the stuff."
