2014

Black parlayed a strong 2012 campaign at Double-A Altoona and an equally promising showing over the first three months of 2013 at Triple-A Indianapolis into a late-July call-up for the Pirates. However, he struggled in his first stint in the majors and was quickly optioned back down. Black, who posted a 2.51 ERA and struck out 63 batters over 46.2 innings at Indianapolis, was then acquired by the Mets in late August as part of the Marlon Byrd deal and received an immediate promotion. Black has a bit of a funky delivery and throws in the 90s, but he struggles to repeat his mechanics and subsequently allows too many walks. He should open 2014 with the Mets and could get a shot at closing, if Bobby Parnell struggles to recover after surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck.
