After the Mets used seven relief pitchers in Sunday's 11-inning loss to the Dodgers, they will reportedly call up RHP Tyler Bashlor from Double-A Binghamton for Monday's game against the Pirates, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.
Bashlor, 25, has a 2.63 ERA in 24 innings across 20 outings with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies this season. Since the Mets drafted him in the 11th round in 2013, he has a 3.29 lifetime ERA in 117 career minor-league games and last pitched on Friday.
Robert Gsellman was the only New York reliever not to pitch on Sunday. The Mets sent out Jerry Blevins (2 IP, 29 pitches), Tim Peterson (2 IP, 31 pitches), Chris Beck (2 2/3 IP, 34 pitches), Anthony Swarzak (1 1/3 IP, 39 pitches), Jeurys Familia (1 IP, 18 pitches), Drew Smith (1 IP, 21 pitches) and Chris Flexen (1 IP, 14 pitches).
New York needed to have nearly its entire bullpen pitch on Sunday after it placed projected starting pitcher Jason Vargas on the disabled list with a calf injury.
