Phillies signed LHP Pat Misch to a minor league contract.

Misch surrendered 11 hits and eight earned runs in seven innings this past year for the Mets. He'll function as organizational depth in the Phils' system next season.

Pat Misch is now a free agent.

The 30-year-old Misch allowed 11 hits and eight earned runs in seven innings for the Mets this season, but left-handers are often given second, third and fourth chances. He should find a minor league contract.

Mets sent LHP Pat Misch outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

The Mets have DFA'd Misch twice this season and he's cleared waivers both times. He should be up later this season.

Mets designated LHP Pat Misch for assignment.

It's the second time he's been designated for assignment this season. He's likely to clear waivers and be assigned to Triple-A. If R.A. Dickey needs a trip to the disabled list, Misch would be an option to come back and replace him.

Mets purchased the contract of LHP Pat Misch from Triple-A Buffalo.

The Mets have yet to announce a corresponding move, but Misch's call-up doesn't necessarily mean Chris Young (shoulder) is headed to the disabled list. The Mets are waiting for results of an MRI on Young and then will decide whether to place him on the DL or send down a position player. Misch will serve in long relief.

Pat Misch has accepted a minor league assignment with Triple-A Buffalo.

Misch successfully cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on Sunday. The southpaw will likely be back with the big club at some point this season.

Mets designated LHP Pat Misch for assignment.

Misch was just called up Saturday and gave the Mets two innings during their doubleheader, but he's the first to go with a starter needed for Sunday. He'll likely clear waivers again and be assigned to Triple-A.
Sun, Apr 17, 2011 11:47:00 AM

The Mets will designate lefty Pat Misch for assignment before Sunday's game.

The Mets plan to call up Dillon Gee from Triple-A Buffalo to make Sunday's start and will DFA Misch to make room on the roster. Misch has cleared waivers once before, which is why the Mets feel he can make it through again. He should wind up back in the system.

Mets recalled LHP Pat Misch from Triple-A Buffalo.

He replaces Chris Young on the roster, but he won't necessarily replace him in the rotation Sunday, as there's a pretty good chance Misch will be needed in relief during Saturday's doubleheader. Dillon Gee remains a possibility to make Sunday's start if it doesn't go to Misch.
Sat, Apr 16, 2011 12:50:00 PM

Pat Misch was scratched from Thursday's start with Triple-A Buffalo.

The Mets need a spot starter for Friday's series opener against the Braves, so Misch was scratched from the start just in case of emergency. D.J. Carrasco is currently lined up to start Friday, but he might be needed during Thursday's doubleheader.
Thu, Apr 14, 2011 03:06:00 PM

Pat Misch has accepted his minor league assignment.

Misch could have opted for free agency, but he'll stick with the Mets instead and try to work his way back up to the major leagues. He posted a 4.82 ERA this spring.
Thu, Mar 31, 2011 11:04:00 AM

Mets sent LHP Pat Misch outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Misch, 29, allowed 19 hits and 12 runs in 18 2/3 innings for the Mets this spring. He has 72 hours to accept the outright assignment or declare free agency.
Tue, Mar 29, 2011 03:40:00 PM

Pat Misch struck out a career-high 10 batters over eight innings of one-run ball, but was handed a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday night.

Where did this come from? Misch entered Friday's game with 101 strikeouts in 185 big league innings, so we can chalk this up to an anomaly. The soft-tossing southpaw finishes the year with a 3.89 ERA over six starts and five relief appearances with the Mets. He's a useful arm to have in the organization in the event of an injury, but he shouldn't be starting meaningful games on the major league level.
Fri, Oct 1, 2010 10:20:00 PM

Pat Misch will start against the Phillies on Sunday, giving Mike Pelfrey and Jon Niese an extra day of rest.

Now that the Mets are mathematically eliminated, they'll begin to rest some of their arms. Pelfrey currently has 189 2/3 innings under his belt while the rookie Niese has logged a career-high 165 1/3 innings. They are now slated to start the first two games of the series against the Brewers next week.
