Mets Add Kyle Farnsworth To Bullpen From Triple-A


Kyle Farnsworth had been slated to begin the season at Triple-A after signing a minor-league deal with the Mets, but Bobby Parnell?s elbow injury opened up a spot in the bullpen.

Jose Valverde is expected to take over as the Mets? closer, but they?ve recalled Farnsworth from the minors to fill a setup role.

Farnsworth is 38 years old and threw just 38 innings for the Rays and Pirates last season, posting a 4.70 ERA and 28/10 K/BB ratio.
