Reid-Foley has made eight rehab appearances in the minors since Aug. 29, covering eight innings and striking out 13 while allowing three runs on three hits and five walks. Reid-Foley appears to have made a full recovery from right elbow inflammation, which resulted in him being placed on the injured list July 4. Before he was shut down with the injury, Reid-Foley had turned in a 5.23 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 20.2 innings out of the bullpen while working mostly in a mop-up role, so the Mets likely aren't rushing to add him back to the 28-man active roster.
Reid-Foley (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Reid-Foley has been out since the start of July with elbow inflammation. He'll now be ineligible to return before the end of August, though whether or not he's in the mix to return at that point is unclear.
Reid-Foley was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right elbow inflammation. The move is retroactive to July 1. The right-hander surrendered five runs (three earned) over two-thirds of an inning during his last appearance Wednesday, and the elbow issue could explain some of his struggles. Reid-Foley could officially be activated just ahead of the All-Star break, but he's more likely to return sometime following the midseason festivities since he's dealing with an arm injury.
Reid-Foley retired just one of the seven batters he faced and allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and a walk in Wednesday's 20-2 loss to Atlanta. Reid-Foley was one of four Mets pitchers charged with at least three earned runs as a previously slumping Atlanta offense sent 50 batters to the plate on the night. The right-hander owns a strong 28.3 percent strikeout rate over his 12 relief appearances for the Mets, but his ERA sits at a bloated 5.66 thanks to two outings in which he's given up a total of 10 runs (nine earned).
Reid-Foley was recalled by the Mets on Monday. The right-hander served as the 27th man in Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, and he'll return to the Mets' bullpen after Marcus Stroman (personal) was placed on the bereavement list. Reid-Foley has posted a 4.19 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 19.1 innings across 10 relief appearances in the majors this year.
