To make room for Aardesma on the active roster, the Mets optioned RHP Collin McHugh to Triple-A Las Vegas.
To make room on the 40- man roster for Aardesma, the Mets moved RHP Jeurys Familia to the 60-day disabled list.
In eight games at Triple-A Las Vegas, Aardsma has a 1.13 ERA with seven walks and 11 strikeouts in eight innings, having held left-handed hitters to a .191 average.
7:15 am: As Hale points out, Collin McHugh seems to be the logical candidate to be sent out. But, the bigger issue is Aardsma is not on the 40-man roster, meaning the Mets are going to have to make another move as well. It makes the most sense to move Jeurys Familia to the 60-day disabled list which would clear a 40-man roster spot for now, as that would buy them some time for a more significant move later.
