Mets Designate Garrett Olson For Assignment

The Mets announced that they have designated left-hander Garrett Olson for assignment.  The move will allow the Mets to re-activate Johan Santana from the disabled list.

Olson, 28, saw just one-third of an inning with the Mets this year when he pitched against the Marlins in a blowout loss on Wednesday.  In 104 career big league appearances, Olson has a 6.26 ERA with 6.0 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9.

    This will actually make the Mets bullpen better. Believe it or not. Olson is bad.

  2. Talk about a call to arms…one appearance and DFA!

    Left-handedness will only take a guy so far. Olson is just utterly, completely not good.
