Mets to activate Steven Matz, Erik Goeddel, Bobby Parnell from the disabled list
With rosters expanding on Tuesday to 40 players, the Mets have added two more players who will be rejoining the club for the final month of the season.
The Mets announced Steven Matz, Bobby Parnell and Erik Goeddel will be activated from the disabled list in time for Tuesday’s game against the Phillies.
Goeddel is on the 60-day disabled list, and needs to be accommodated on the 40-man roster. But the Mets outright Daniel Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas, so he can take Muno’s spot on the 40-man roster.
As for Matz, the club has not decided when he will re-enter the rotation. He threw 78 pitches for Double-A Binghamton on Monday night, allowing just a hit and two walks in 5 1/3 innings.
Matz and Goeddel join Kevin Plawecki, Eric Campbell, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, and Eric Young Jr. as the first wave of September call-ups.
