Flexen signed a contract with the Doosan Bears of the Korean Baseball Organization on Saturday, Marc Carig of The Athletic reports.
Flexan was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday, and he'll now move his career overseas rather than sticking around in the minors. The 25-year-old struggled during his major-league stints over the past three seasons, posting an 8.07 ERA, 2.13 WHIP and 49:54 K:BB across 68 innings.
Flexen was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday.
With Brad Brach returning to the club on a one-year deal, Flexen loses his 40-man spot and will now be subjected to waivers. Flexen was always a longshot to survive the winter on the Mets' roster, as he continued to struggle at the big-league level in 2019 despite an uptick in velocity and was not brought back in September when rosters expanded.
Flexen was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.
Flexen was promoted from Triple-A on Thursday and recorded two outs without allowing a run in his lone appearance. The 25-year-old has a 6.59 ERA, 2.05 WHIP and 13:10 K:BB in 13.2 major-league innings this season.
Flexen was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.
He has logged over two innings in three of his last five appearances at Triple-A and figures to work as a long reliever in the majors. Flexen has a career 8.15 ERA and 2.14 WHIP in 67.1 MLB innings.
Flexen was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Flexen joined the big club in mid-June and posted a 3.68 ERA with nine punchouts over 7.1 innings before being demoted. Jeurys Familia (shoulder) and Luis Avilan (elbow) were activated from the injured list, while Luis Guillorme was recalled from Triple-A in the Mets' flurry of roster moves.
Flexen was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse prior to Saturday's game against the Cardinals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Puma reports that the Mets have given up on Flexen becoming a major-league starting pitcher, but they want to give him a shot to carve out a role as a reliever. He has given up 12 runs in 11 innings as a big-league reliever.
Flexen was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday after giving up a walkoff single in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.
Flexen worked around a leadoff double to Ryan Braun to keep the score tied in the 17th inning, but Braun got him again in the 18th with a bases-loaded one-out single to send the Brewers home victorious. The Mets need fresh arms after the marathon, so Tim Peterson and Tyler Bashlor were called up to take the place of Flexen and Ryan O'Rourke.
Flexen was called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.
Flexen will join the Mets for his second stint in the majors this season, the first of which came in a spot start a couple weeks ago. The 24-year-old allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.1 innings during that outing but should be used out of the bullpen this time around with Luis Avilan (elbow) landing on the injured list.
Flexen was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse following his start against the Cardinals on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Flexen was likely destined for a short stay on the roster regardless of his outing Saturday, but his performance certainly didn't help his case to stick around. He lasted just 4.1 innings and gave up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and four walks. He failed to strike out a single batter. Daniel Zamora will take his place on the roster.
The Mets formally recalled Flexen from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of his scheduled start Saturday against the Cardinals.
As expected, Flexen will move up to the big club as the replacement in the rotation for Jacob deGrom (elbow), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. DeGrom will undergo an MRI on Monday, which should provide more information regarding the length of his stay on the IL. With a day off coming up April 25, the Mets would be able to get by without a replacement for deGrom until April 30 versus the Reds if need be. With that in mind, there's a decent chance Flexen is sent down to the minors after Saturday's outing to afford the Mets more roster flexibility over the next week and a half.
The Mets will recall Flexen from Triple-A Syracuse to start Saturday's game against the Cardinals, SNYtv.com reports.
Flexen will have huge shoes to fill, as he'll be tasked with replacing Jacob deGrom, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday after experiencing complications with his elbow in a recent throwing session. DeGrom is slated to undergo an MRI on Monday, at which point it should be known whether a replacement for him will be needed beyond this weekend. The Mets aren't exactly teeming with quality rotation depth in the high minors, so Flexen might only need to avoid a complete implosion Saturday to earn another start if deGrom is in fact out for more than the minimum amount of time. Flexen yielded seven runs over 12 innings in his first two starts of the season for Syracuse but posted a sterling 18:3 K:BB.
The Mets optioned Flexen to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Flexen was one of three players on the 40-man roster shipped back to the minors, with fellow pitchers Franklyn Kilome and Drew Gagnon joining him. All but one of Flexen's four appearances with the Mets last season came in relief, but he'll likely continue his development as a starter at Triple-A Syracuse to begin 2019.
Flexen (knee) is listed among the Mets' available bullpen arms for Saturday's Grapefruit League opener versus the Braves, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Flexen ended the 2018 campaign on the shelf after requiring surgery in early August to repair a torn meniscus. Based on his availability for the exhibition opener, Flexen didn't incur any major setbacks in his recovery over the winter and should get the opportunity to compete for a multi-inning relief gig in camp. It's more likely he opens the season in the Triple-A Syracuse rotation, however.
Flexen underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus, Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Flexen was placed on the minor-league disabled list earlier in the month, and this essentially ends his season. The 24-year-old posted a 4.40 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 92 innings with Triple-A Las Vegas before going under the knife. He also made four appearances for the big club, though he struggled to a 12.79 ERA and 3.16 WHIP over those outings.
Flexen was sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
Flexen was up for just one start and failed to impress, allowing five runs in three innings Sunday against the Rays. He'll be replaced by P.J. Conlon. Flexen could earn more opportunities down the line for the struggling Mets, but with an 8.45 ERA and a 39:41 K:BB in 54.1 career major-league innings, he's unlikely to be a useful fantasy asset.
Flexen (0-2) allowed five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two through three innings as he took the loss Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Flexen was roughed up in the first inning, as he surrendered a three-run blast to C.J. Cron to put his team in an early 3-0 hole. He was lifted with a 5-0 deficit after giving up two more runs in the third. During Flexen's limited time in the major leagues this season, he's been anything but sharp, posting an alarming 12.79 ERA and 3.16 WHIP with three strikeouts over 6.1 innings. After a discouraging outing, he seems unlikely to stick with the big club, especially with Noah Syndergaard (finger) and Jason Vargas (calf) on the verge of returning.
Flexen was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday prior to his start against the Rays, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Flexen was announced as the starter Friday, so the team just needed to option Drew Smith to create room on the 25-man roster. Flexen has an uninspiring 4.84 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 13 starts with the 51s in 2018.
Flexen will be called up to start Sunday against the Rays, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Despite an off day Thursday, the Mets need a fifth starter with a doubleheader coming up Monday. Flexen has allowed eight runs (four earned) in 3.1 innings of relief for the Mets this season and has a mediocre 4.84 ERA in 67 innings for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Flexen was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
Flexen threw an inning out of the Mets' bullpen Sunday, so the team decided to replace him with a fresh arm and add Tyler Bashlor to the relief corps in his place. Flexen has already had two stints with the Mets this season, so there's a good chance he will be back with the big club again at some point this summer.
Flexen will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Jason Vargas (calf) is headed to the disabled list and Flexen will come up to take his spot on the roster. Flexen is also an option to start Sunday's series finale against the Dodgers in place of Vargas, although he's not a lock for that assignment according to DiComo. Flexen had a poor outing with the big club earlier in the year (three earned runs, eight hits over two innings) and he's mostly struggled with Las Vegas, posting a 5.43 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 12 appearances.
