Mota’s Apology Not Accepted

Guillermo Mota had been brought in to fill a hole in the bullpen when Duaner Sanchez was hurt in a cab accident in Miami just before last years trade deadline. Six months later he’s needed again to cover for a Sanchez injury but will not be able to answer the call because of his suspension. […]

Bullpen Notes

With Duaner Sanchez out at least four months with a hairline fracture in his right shoulder and Guillermo Mota serving a 50 game suspension for steroids use the Mets bullpen is suffering.
