Bostick cleared waivers and was outrighted the Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Bostick was designated for assignment Friday but will remain in the organization after clearing waivers. He'll return to Syracuse, where where he has a 6.21 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 29:23 K:BB over 37.2 innings this season.
Bostick was designated for assignment Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Bostick was called up for the first time Wednesday and made his big-league debut the next day, tossing a single scoreless inning of relief. Given that he had a 6.21 ERA at the Triple-A level prior to his promotion, he seemingly stands a good chance of passing through waivers unclaimed.
The Mets will select Bostick's contract from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. New York will need to open up spots on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for Bostick, and they'll presumably do that by designating Jerad Eickhoff for assignment for the third time this season after he was rocked for 10 runs across 3.1 innings in Tuesday's 12-5 loss. Due to the short start from Eickhoff and a doubleheader two days earlier, the Mets' bullpen has been overworked of late, so Bostick should give the team some much-needed length in relief. The 26-year-old has typically served as a starter for Syracuse this season, posting a 6.21 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 37.2 innings over his 10 appearances.
The Cardinals signed Bostick to a minor-league contract Tuesday. Bostick will get a spot in the Cardinals' 60-man roster pool and will report to the team's alternate training site in Springfield. The right-handed pitcher, who previously joined the Cardinals for spring training, spent the 2019 campaign in the Astros organization. He pitched exclusively at Triple-A Round Rock, posting a 7.28 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over 80.1 innings.
Bostick was released by the Cardinals in March, Baseball America reports. The 62nd overall pick by the Rangers back in 2013, Bostick was traded to Houston in 2015 and was released by the Astros late last season before joining the Cardinals on a minor-league pact. He has never made it past the Triple-A level.
