Jurado was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Jurado pitched poorly in his Mets debut Tuesday against the Orioles, giving up five runs on nine hits while striking out just two batters in four innings of work. He'll be removed from the roster as the Mets make room for their trade-deadline acquisitions.
Jurado allowed five earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out two across four innings Tuesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision. Jurado gave up all five of his earned runs in the first two innings, surrendering a three-run homer in the first frame. He did manage to settle in from there, retiring six of the last eight batters he faced. The outing was his debut with the Mets, and he was needed as a starter after the Mets played a doubleheader Sunday against the Yankees. It's unclear how the team will utilize him going forward.
Jurado was recalled by the Mets prior to his scheduled start against the Orioles on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Jurado joined the Mets via trade in early August and will make his debut with the team Tuesday. The right-hander carries a 5.85 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 177 innings in the majors, so he wouldn't seem to carry much fantasy upside heading into his first appearance with the Mets.
Jurado will be recalled to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Jurado, who was acquired in a trade from the Rangers in early August after being designated for assignment, spent a day on the Mets' big-league roster Sunday but did not get into a game. With a 5.85 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 13.2 percent strikeout rate in 177 career major-league innings, expectations should be low for the 24-year-old.
Jurado was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Monday. Jurado received his first callup of 2020 on Sunday, joining the Mets as the 29th man for their doubleheader with the Yankees. He went unused in either contest and will now head back to the alternate site as the Mets reduce their active roster to the standard 28 men ahead of Monday's make-up game against the Marlins.
