Erik Goeddel (dizziness) tossed one-third of an inning in his return to action Monday versus the Marlins.

Goeddel came down with dizziness and blurred vision a week ago, but he felt improvement after being put on medication. He only threw one pitch in Monday's game, inducing a fielder's choice to finally get the Mets out of a seven-run fifth inning for Miami.

During the 2016 campaign, he pitched to a 4.54 ERA and 36/14 K/BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings while bouncing back-and-forth between Triple-A and the Mets.

In 28 bullpen innings with the Mets this season, Goeddel held a 4.18 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 27/7 K/BB ratio. His is a serviceable filler arm out of the pen, but there is no fantasy intrigue here.
