Look for Bostick

The Mets acquired left-hander Adam Bostick along with lefty Jason Vargas in November of 2006 in exchange for right-handed relievers Henry Owens and Matt Lindstrom. Last season Bostick pitched for AAA New Orleans. He had a pretty bad year going 6-7 with a 5.66 era, 91 strikeouts, and 45 walks in 21 games (20 starts, 97 innings).

Even though he did not fair too well last season in AAA he pitched very well in the Arizona Fall League (2-0, 2.74 era in 6 starts) and is pitching well in the Dominican Winter League (0-1, 2.77 era in 3 starts). This is the best Bostick has ever pitched since being drafted sixth round of the 2001 First-Year Player Draft out of Salem High School (PA). I would keep an eye out for him because if someone gets hurt he could sneak up and start for the Mets if Humber and Mulvey struggle.
