  • Mets' Jose Butto: Trouble finding plate Saturday

    Butto came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Dodgers, giving up two runs on three hits and five walks over 4.1 innings while striking out six.

    The right-hander threw only 47 of 95 pitches for strikes, but he was able to limit the damage. Butto was coming off back-to-back quality starts, so one shaky performance shouldn't jeopardize his spot in the rotation, but he now has a 21:9 K:BB through his first 16.1 big-league innings this season to go along with his 1.65 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. He'll look to sharpen his control in his next outing, which lines up to come next weekend at home against the Cardinals.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Dominates Royals

    Butto yielded two hits and one walk over six scoreless innings in a no-decision in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Royals. He struck out nine.

    Butto was promoted Sunday and made the most of his opportunity with a terrific outing. Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said afterward that Butto is "not going anywhere," per David Adler of MLB.com, implying the right-hander will remain in the starting rotation. Butto gave up a pair of doubles but ultimately never found himself in much danger Saturday, and he now has a 15:4 K:BB with just one run allowed over 12 innings at the MLB level this season. He should be picked up in most fantasy leagues, though managers may want to proceed with caution this upcoming week with a tough road matchup against the Dodgers on the schedule.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Promoted for Sunday's start

    Butto was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start Sunday's game against the Royals.

    The 26-year-old allowed one run over six frames in a spot start during a doubleheader last week, and he'll rejoin the Mets to start the series finale versus Kansas City. Butto should receive at least a couple turns through the rotation while Tylor Megill (shoulder) is on the injured list.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: In line for Sunday's start

    The Mets are expected to call up Butto from Triple-A Syracuse to start Sunday against the Royals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Adrian Houser would be on regular rest Sunday, but the Mets will go ahead and bring Butto up this weekend rather waiting until early next week. Butto tossed six innings of one-run ball in a spot start last week against the Tigers after nearly winning a rotation spot following a strong showing this spring. The 26-year-old should be in line to make at least one additional start after Sunday due to Tylor Megill (shoulder) still being on the injured list.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Likely to start Saturday

    The Mets are expected to recall Butto from Triple-A Syracuse to start Saturday against the Royals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Butto was with the Mets last week when he made a spot start Thursday against the Tigers, tossing six innings and striking out six while allowing one run in a no-decision. Since he was designated as the Mets' 27th man for the twin bill, Butto was sent back to Syracuse after the spot start, but he doesn't look like he'll have to wait long to get the ball again for the big club. Saturday had been Julio Teheran's turn in the rotation, but Teheran was designated for assignment after just one start. With Kodai Senga (shoulder) and Tylor Megill (shoulder) on the injured list, Butto could wind up staying in the rotation for multiple turns.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Hurls six frames in spot start

    Butto allowed one run on three hits and three walks while striking out six batters over six innings in a no-decision against the Tigers in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

    Butto was called up from Triple-A Syracuse as the Mets' 27th man and got the start for Game 2 of the twin bill. The right-hander made a strong impression, firing 90 pitches and racking up 12 whiffs among his 52 strikes. He allowed just a second-inning run but departed in line for the loss since New York's offense couldn't put a run on the board until the ninth inning. Butto held his own over nine big-league appearances last year, posting a 3.64 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 38:23 K:BB over 42 innings. The Mets signed Julio Teheran on Wednesday to fill a spot in the rotation with Kodai Senga (shoulder) and Tylor Megill (shoulder) both on the injured list, but if Teheran doesn't perform well, a door could open for Butto to make additional big-league starts.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Making spot start Thursday

    Butto will be called up from Triple-A Syracuse to start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Tigers, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.

    He will be added to the roster as the 27th man for the doubleheader once the matinee concludes. Butto nearly won a rotation spot with a strong spring, allowing just one earned run in 10 innings. He permitted two earned runs over five innings in his first start with Triple-A Syracuse.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Could start Thursday

    Butto could be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start for the Mets in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Tigers, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Butto wouldn't be eligible to be recalled from Triple-A yet under normal circumstances, but because the Mets can add a 27th man for the doubleheader, the 26-year-old is an option. The righty allowed two earned runs over five innings in his first start with Syracuse and yielded just one earned run in 10 frames this spring.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Not immediate rotation option

    Butto can't be added to the 26-man roster until April 12 without an associated injured list move, and he likely isn't an option to replace Tylor Megill (shoulder) in the rotation when the Mets next need a fifth starter April 9, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    The Mets are caught in a bind when it comes to their pitching staff. With Yohan Ramirez facing a two-game suspension, the team elected to add Reed Garrett to the roster for bullpen depth when Megill landed on the IL, which blocks Butto or Joey Lucchesi from being promoted to plug the immediate hole in the rotation. That gives prospects Christian Scott and Mike Vasil, who aren't yet on the 40-man roster, a leg up to take Megill's spot. The Mets are also said to have interest in signing Julio Teheran. Butto could be added late in the month, however -- New York plays 13 games in 13 days starting Friday and will likely need a sixth starter to get through that stretch.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Candidate for rotation

    Butto is an option to fill the spot in the Mets' rotation vacated by Tylor Megill (shoulder), Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.

    Butto pitched well during spring training in allowing just one run with a 9:2 K:BB over 10 innings. He lost out to Megill for the No. 5 spot at that time but could now slide into the slot due to injury. Joey Lucchesi is another candidate to replace Megill, and the Mets also are reportedly showing interest in Julio Teheran.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Butto to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Butto put his best foot forward this spring in the competition for the final spot in the Mets' rotation, yielding just one run with a 9:2 K:BB over 10 innings. However, the team ultimately decided on Tylor Megill to round out the rotation. Butto will join Syracuse's rotation for now but will still probably be needed to make some starts for the Mets this season.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Impressing with improved arsenal

    Butto has touched 97 mph with his fastball this spring and shown a slider and cutter to go along with his changeup and curveball, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The deeper and stronger arsenal has led to good results -- Butto has allowed only one earned run over 10 Grapefruit League innings with a 9:2 K:BB. The 25-year-old has also been more aggressive in attacking the strike zone, a sign of his confidence in his new repertoire. "A light switch went off in the middle of [last] year, and he's really turned into a monster on the mound and an aggressive, come-at-you, want-to-get-you-out type of guy," pitching coach Jeremy Hefner said of Butto earlier this spring. After posting a 3.29 ERA and 28:9 K:BB over five September starts and 27.1 innings in 2023, Butto is behind Tylor Megill in the battle for the one available spot in the Mets' Opening Day rotation, but he's likely to be the next man up should a starter get hurt or falter.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Sharp in first spring start

    Butto gave up three hits over two scoreless innings in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros. He struck out one without walking a batter.

    The 25-year-old right-hander got his spring off to a good start as he battles for an Opening Day spot with the Mets. Butto looked good at the end of last season in the majors, posting a 3.29 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 28:9 K:BB over five starts and 27.1 innings, but his 5.93 ERA and 1.63 WHIP at Triple-A Syracuse in a larger sample (91 innings) are concerning. He's battling with Tylor Megill, Joey Lucchesi and others in camp for one of the team's open rotation jobs.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Fighting for rotation spot

    Butto will be among those competing for the final spot in the Mets' rotation following the injury to Kodai Senga (shoulder), Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    He'll be going up against Tylor Megill, Joey Lucchesi and Max Kranick for the gig. Butto, who turns 26 next month, held a 3.64 ERA and 38:23 K:BB over 42 frames covering seven starts and two relief appearances for the Mets in 2023. He posted a 5.93 ERA in 19 starts during his time at Triple-A Buffalo.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Ends season with loss

    Butto (1-4) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings, taking the loss Sunday versus the Phillies.

    Butto earned his third quality start of the season but was once again let down by his offense. The right-hander allowed two or fewer runs in all but two of his nine appearances (seven starts), but he came away with just one win. He finishes 2023 with a 3.64 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 38:23 K:BB over 42 major-league innings.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Yields four runs in loss

    Butto (1-3) allowed four runs on four hits and two walks over four innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Phillies.

    Butto's outing was derailed by a four-run fourth inning that included a two-run homer by Nick Castellanos. Butto had allowed just four runs over his previous three starts covering 17.1 innings, and Sunday's outing was his first time giving up more than three runs. His ERA jumped to 3.75 alongside a 34:21 K:BB through 36 frames. Butto is currently lined up to end his 2023 season with a home start against the Phillies.

  • Mets' Jose Butto: Punches out six

    Butto yielded one run on four hits and a walk over six innings in Monday's win against Miami. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    Butto turned in four scoreless innings before the Marlins finally tagged him with a run in the fifth frame. Over his last three outings, he's allowed four runs over 17.1 frames (2.08 ERA) with a 19:5 K:BB. His season ERA dropped to 3.09 through 32 MLB innings. Butto's next start is currently lined up to start in Philadelphia this weekend.
