 NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Mets optioned struggling right-hander Mike Pelfrey to Triple-A New Orleans on Sunday and called up outfielder Carlos Gomez.
Pelfrey won the fifth spot in the rotation with a strong spring training but went 0-5 with a 6.53 ERA in six starts for the Mets. He allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings in New York's 12-3 loss to Milwaukee on Saturday.
``It's a business,'' Pelfrey said. ``I didn't win any games. You have to win to be here. Right now I think it's for the best.''
The Mets didn't immediately announce a starter to replace Pelfrey, who was set to go against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday, but manager Willie Randolph mentioned reliever Aaron Sele and minor league left-hander Jason Vargas as possibilities.
Sele is 1-0 with a 4.11 ERA in nine relief appearances but has been a starter for most of his career. He went 8-6 with a 4.53 ERA in 28 games with the Dodgers last season, 15 starts.
Vargas is 2-3 with a 5.30 ERA in seven starts with New Orleans.
Gomez made his major league debut Sunday against the Brewers, getting the start in right field. The 21-year-old hit .286 with two homers and 13 RBIs with the Zephyrs. He also stole 17 bases.
Regular right fielder Moises Alou sat out with a strained left quadriceps and could be headed for the disabled list. He came out in the seventh inning of Saturday's loss.
