Mets activated RHP Gonzalez Germen from the 15-day disabled list.

Germen missed over a month of action due to a virus and an abscess in an undisclosed location. He returns to a 3.56 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 17 2/3 relief frames for the Mets.
Jun 10 - 10:51 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Gonzalez Germen (virus, abscess) is "close" to returning.

Germen has made four rehab appearances, including pitching on back-to-back days Friday and Saturday. He's likely to replace Dana Eveland in the Mets' bullpen once ready.
Jun 8 - 2:44 PM

Gonzalez Germen will not be ready to return from the disabled list Wednesday when first eligible.

Germen has an abscess in an undisclosed location and is still dealing with flu-like symptoms. He made a relief appearance Friday with High-A St. Lucie but has since been pulled off that rehab assignment.
May 20 - 5:16 PM

Mets placed RHP Gonzalez Germen on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 6, with a virus.

Germen simply wasn't getting better, and the Mets decided to make a move with the reliever. He should be ready to return when first eligible on May 21. Jacob deGrom has taken his spot in the Mets' bullpen.
May 12 - 11:34 PM

Gonzalez Germen is battling flu-like symptoms.

Germen could need to visit a hospital and will likely be unavailable for Mets' series opener on Monday night at Yankee Stadium. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 3.57 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 17 2/3 innings this season.
May 12 - 3:50 PM

Gonzalez Germen was charged with four runs on four hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning Friday against the Braves.

An off night for Germen, who came into Friday's outing with 8 1/3 scoreless innings over his last six outings. The 26-year-old could be a sleeper for the closer role if (or when) Jose Valverde falters.
Apr 18 - 10:38 PM

Gonzalez Germen recorded six outs for his first career save in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Germen got the nod for the save chance Thursday with LaTroy Hawkins (groin) unavailable. The 25-year-old right-hander allowed no hits and two walks while striking out three. He now owns a 2.60 ERA and 18/10 K/BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings with the big club this season. While Hawkins should get the closer gig back as soon as he's ready, Germen is quietly carving out a niche in the Mets' bullpen.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Germen, 25, owns a 5.70 ERA and 48/10 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A. It appears the Mets simply want a fresh arm for the bullpen.
Tue, Jul 2, 2013 08:40:00 AM

He's now on the 40-man roster. Germen posted a 4.34 ERA with 121 strikeouts over 153 1/3 innings across three levels for the Mets in 2012.
