  • Mets' Dedniel Nunez: Returns to mound Sunday

    Nunez (nose) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out one in a one-inning relief appearance during Sunday's 5-2 win over the Cubs.

    Nunez had not pitched since June 15 due to a sinus infection, and he wasn't very sharp after a whole week off. The right-hander served up a two-run home run to Christopher Morel, but that was all the Cubs could muster. Nunez has a 2.89 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB over 18.2 innings this season, and he's added four holds while occasionally seeing high-leverage assignments.

  • Mets' Dedniel Nunez: Battling sinus infection

    Nunez hasn't pitched since June 15, and Mets manager Carlos Mendoza indicated earlier this week that the right-hander was dealing with a sinus infection, SNY reports.

    After bouncing between Triple-A and the big-league roster in April and May, Nunez settled in following his latest promotion and is having a breakout campaign in the Mets' bullpen, posting a 2.04 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 26:3 K:BB through 17.2 innings while generating a 42.2 percent whiff rate with his slider. The 28-year-old has four holds on the season, all of which have come in his last six appearances as he works his way into a high-leverage role. Once he's recovered from the infection, Nunez could emerge as a top set-up man for closer Edwin Diaz.

  • Mets' Dedniel Nunez: Collects second hold

    Nunez struck out one in 1.1 perfect innings of relief Tuesday to record his second hold of the season in a win over the Nationals.

    Making his eighth career MLB appearance, the right-hander provided the Mets' beleaguered bullpen with some crucial high-leverage help. Nunez is in his third stint this year on the big-league roster, but he might stick around for good this time around -- through 11.2 innings he sports a 2.31 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 19:3 K:BB. With Edwin Diaz (shoulder) still sidelined and Reed Garrett, Adam Ottavino and Jake Diekman all struggling, it's not out of the question that Nunez will get added to the saves mix in the short term.

  • Mets' Dedniel Nunez: Playing for Double-A club

    Nunez (elbow) was activated from Triple-A Syracuse's 7-day injured list Thursday and assigned to Double-A Binghamton.

    Nunez opened the season on the IL while he continued to recover from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last March. The 26-year-old righty made 10 rehab appearances -- including seven with Binghamton -- before the Mets ultimately chose to activate him and have him stick around with the Double-A affiliate. He's now made eight appearances with Binghamton spanning eight innings, giving up five earned runs on 10 hits and nine walks while striking out 12.
