Left-hander Pat Misch was pulled after tossing five scoreless innings from Triple-A Buffalo's game at Lehigh Valley, the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate. Misch had only thrown 55 pitches, signaling he could be brought back on short rest and make his 2010 Mets debut on Saturday. That would allow the Mets to keep Hisanori Takahashi in the bullpen.

Takahashi is listed as Saturday's starter, but Jerry Manuel said before Tuesday's game against the Rockies that he might dip to the minors if the Japanese left-hander needs to be used in relief.

Misch has a 3.23 ERA with the Bisons this season and is in line for his 11th win if Buffalo holds a lead tonight. He went 3-4 with a 4.12 ERA in 22 appearances (seven starts) for the Mets last season. Read more about Misch in last week's farm report.
