The start was Erickson's fifth at the Triple-A level and none were especially exceptional; in the five starts, Erickson was 1-3 with a 6.29 ERA, including a losing effort on Friday.
The Mets must contractually reach a decision regarding what to do with Erickson by Monday, and obviously his Major League stuff is not up to snuff at this point – at least not to the point where he could replace Seo in New York's rotation.
That would also seem to short-circuit the possibility of a trade involving Erickson, which means the Mets will probably release the 36-year-old righthander by Monday.
Because Erickson has been on the Major League disabled list since April 8, when he strained a hamstring 11 minutes into his warmup at Atlanta's Turner Field, he has been earning a full Major League salary since that date.
He missed all of 2003 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum.
All tickets for Friday's washout will be honored Sunday afternoon or can be exchanged for a future Yankees home game.
