Possible Option:

After 2 starts Adam Bostick is 1-0 with an era of 2.25, 12 strikeouts in12 innings. After having a very decent year last year in AAA New Orleans going 6-7 with a 5.66 era, 91 strikeouts, and 45 walks in 21 games (20 starts, 97 innings), Bostick had a strong fall and winter. He pitched in the Arizona Fall League going 2-0, with a 2.74 era, 23 strikeouts in 6 games.

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. So far, the trade has favored the Marlins but if there are problems in the rotation and newly signed Claudio Vargas does not pitch well then Bostick is one of the best candidates in the farm system to take a spot on the Mets rotation.
