|Anthony Recker nearly pitched in Monday's extra-inning loss|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/30/13) Mets backup catcher Anthony Recker, who was a part-time pitcher in college at Alvernia University, could be used as an emergency pitcher in late, extra-inning situations.
In fact, Recker was approached by manager Terry Collins and was ready to pitch the 16th inning for the Mets Monday before the Marlins hit a walkoff sacrifice fly to win the game in the 15th.
"I was pitching the next inning," he said. "I was ready."
Recker has just one hit in 10 at-bats in his first season with the Mets.
