Four Mets pitchers saw action on Day 1 of the Arizona Fall League on Tuesday.
Right-hander Collin McHugh, who had a breakout regular season with Double-A Binghamton, started for Peoria and was charged with three runs on five hits and a walk in two innings.
"Not the best start to my AFL season, but definitely not the worst. I'm healthy, getting groundballs, and throwing strikes. Up from here!" McHugh (@Collin_McHugh) tweeted after the outing.
In relief, right-hander Erik Turgeon allowed a run in one inning, while left-hander Robert Carson allowed a run in 1 1/3 innings. Right-hander Taylor Whitenton, who pitched for low-A Savannah, tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings. He allowed a hit and walked two while striking out two.
Mets farmhand Wilfredo Tovar went 0-for-4 while batting ninth and manning second base.
