Schwinden to get a start

Buffalo's lone All-Star was Chris Schwinden and the youngster was rewarded for his fine season in Buffalo with a call-up to the Mets. It appears that he will get a chance to at least audition for the Mets hierarchy by starting one of the games against the Braves during a double header.

I completed this post earlier this season about Schwinden who seems a lot like Dillon Gee.  My post was more in reference to the course of their career's but I've heard that their pitching styles are very similar as well.  Schwinden went 8-8 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP in 26 starts with the Bison's.
