Brewer and Hamilton with 99 pitches between them, think they have to send down Schmidt or Brito and bring up a fresh multi-inning option, not just for Friday coverage but Saturday too.
Krook pitched one inning in AAA tonight, struck out the side on 12 pitches. He hadn't pitched in six days and is stretched out to at least 3-4 innings, so my guess is that was so he didn't get rusty and he is still the frontrunner to come up tomorrow, Schmidt or Brito down. Deivi Garcia is also possible as a multi-inning option, both he and Krook are on the 40 man already, Weissert is too but he is more of a one inning guy. Weissert has pitched in 5 AAA games so far, 5.1 innings, 4-4 in saves, and just one hit allowed.
Weissert has about 100 innings in AA/AAA since 2021, mostly in AAA. This is his combined line since 2021:
102.2 54 23 19 47 137, 1.67 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 12 K/9, 28 for 31 in save opportunities. Too many walks, but yowza!!
He turned 28 in February, has been consistently great in AAA since he was 26. He got a bit of a chance down the stretch for NY in 2022, had two terrible games early on but a 1.50 ERA in his final 8 appearances there too, from early Sept-early Oct. That must be so frustrating, you are 28 and have been great in AAA since 2021, but guys keep jumping you because they don't have options and Cashman needs to stockpile depth.
