NY Mets’ Lefty Reliever Justin Wilson was in Brooklyn, making a rehab appearance on Saturday.

With the New York Mets’ bullpen looking questionable these days, it appears the team will receive reinforcements soon enough, as lefthander Justin Wilson made his second rehab start since landing on the disabled list in May. 

Wilson, on a rehab assignment with short-season Single-A Brooklyn Cyclones of the New York-Penn League (NYPL), tossed a scoreless eighth inning, striking out two hitters in their 2-1 win over host Staten Island Yankees on Saturday night. He permitted an infield hit and threw 12 of 15 pitches for strikes.

Wilson made his first rehab outing last week with Triple-A Syracuse, whiffing two batters while pitching a scoreless frame of relief. 

Wilson has been on the injured list with left elbow soreness for a month but appears to be nearing his return to New York.

However, the Mets haven’t indicated an exact timetable for his MLB return as of yet.
