  • Sharebar

The Mets today sent down starting pitcher Chris Schwinden to Triple-A Buffalo. In his place, they called up outfielder Vinny Rottino.

Schwinden, 25, has struggled so far this season in his two starts, going 0-1 with an 11.25 ERA. In his first start, Schwinden was roughed up by the Rockies, allowing five earned runs over four plus innings. In his second outing, he gave up another five earned in four innings in Houston. He also made four starts at the end of last year, in which he went 0-2 with a 4.71 ERA.

Vinny Rottino has been tearing the cover off the ball in Buffalo so far this year. The 32 year-old is hitting .317 with 14 RBI. Rottino played eight games for the Marlins last year, hitting .167.

Rottino will be available for tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks.
