Drew Gagnon, who was on short rest, came in to Tuesday night's game after Steven Matz failed to get an out. Gagnon allowed five runs, but saved the Mets' bullpen by eating up 5.1 innings. His reward? A demotion to Triple-A Syracuse.

The demotion isn't an indictment on Gagnon, though. It's a move being made out of necessity in order for the Mets to add a fresh arm to the bullpen. And that fresh arm is Jacob Rhame.

Rhame, 26, has struggled so far this season for Syracuse, posting a 9.53 ERA and 1.58 WHIP while walking five and striking out seven in 5.2 innings (six appearances).

The Triple-A Syracuse Mets have announced their Opening Day roster, and as expected, Tim Tebow is officially on it.

Tebow will continue his unlikely quest toward reaching the majors with the Mets' new Triple-A affiliate after playing 84 games with Double-A Binghamton last season. The 31-year-old former quarterback went 4-for-15 in Spring Training with one RBI and one walk.

He's among several familiar names on the squad. Carlos GomezRajai Davis, and Gregor Blanco are in an outfield which includes Tebow and Rymer Liriano.

Mets RHP Anthony Swarzak has been placed on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, the team announced.

Jacob Rhame was promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas to take Swarzak's place.

Manager Mickey Callaway said Swarzak's MRI showed "just a little bit of inflammation" and that he believes the right-hander will only be on the disabled list for a short period of time.

After Steven Matz was lit up for seven runs in less than an inning of work, the Nationals continued to pile onto the Mets' bullpen on Tuesday night in what was the most lopsided loss in Mets history.

The Nationals scored three runs every inning from the second until the fifth and then tacked on six more in the eighth inning.

Jacob Rhame and Jose Reyes allowed six runs apiece, while Tim Peterson and Tyler Bashlor allowed three runs.

The Mets have once dipped into their farm system to find a starter for Tuesday's game against the Phillies. 

Right-hander Drew Gagnon, who has spent most of his season with Triple-A Las Vegas, will get the start as he makes his Major League debut on Tuesday. The 28-year-old owns a 4.67 ERA/5.10 FIP over 96.1 innings in 17 starts this season. 

Manager Mickey Callaway said Gagnon's fastball is his go-to pitch...

In need of bullpen help with the current group struggling and overworked, the Mets called up RH reliever Tim Peterson and LH reliever Buddy Baumann from Triple-A Las Vegas, and RHP Scott Copeland from Double-A Binghamton before Wednesday's game against the Braves in Atlanta. 

With one 25-man roster spot already open, the Mets only had to send two players -- INF Phillip Evans and RH reliever Jacob Rhame -- to Triple-A to make room on the roster.

Aside from the 25-man roster moves, the Mets made two 40-man roster moves in order to make room for Peterson and Copeland, transferring Juan Lagares to the 60-day DL and designating P.J. Conlon for assignment.
