Hefner optioned to Triple-A Buffalo
NEW YORK -- Less than hour after Wednesday's 9-2 loss to the Phillies, the Mets announced that the team had optioned relief pitcher Jeremy Hefner to Triple-A Buffalo. Right-hander Pedro Beato will replace him on the team's roster and will be available on Thursday for the team's series finale against Philadelphia.

Hefner allowed three earned runs on five hits in 1 1/3 innings on Wednesday -- including a ninth inning home run to Ty Wigginton.

Before Wednesday's outing, the right-hander had made four consecutive scoreless appearances, surrendering only one hit over 4 1/3 innings. Hefner's ERA had dipped below 5.00 -- he struggled immensely early in the season -- but stood at 5.64 following his performance against the Phillies.
