The Mets lost Logan Verrett to the Orioles during the Rule 5 Draft over the winter, but got him back after he was dropped by the Rangers in June.
Since rejoining the Mets and entering the bullpen, Verrett has allowed just one run on four hits in 12.1 innings of work while walking four and striking out 12. Of his six appearances, five of them have been two innings or longer.
Like Robles, Verrett has options and can be sent to Triple-A Las Vegas. Also like Robles, it would seemingly be detrimental to the team to demote Verrett at this point.
