Black continued to struggle with his control early on for Las Vegas (while not allowing many runs), but has turned it around as of late.
Over his last three appearances, Black has not walked a batter.
Overall for Las Vegas, Black has a 0.73 ERA. He’s allowed nine hits, walked 10, and struck out 12 in 12.1 innings of work.
It’s likely that Black will always be a bit wild, but he’s showed encouraging signs lately for Las Vegas.
After a string of excellence, the Mets bullpen is again struggling, having cost the team multiple games in the last week.
In addition, there are three relievers currently dealing with minor ailments. Daisuke Matsuzaka (calf), Carlos Torres (lat), and Scott Rice (back), have all been held out of action recently due to injury.
However, Black should not be overlooked.
