He joined the Mets at the end of May and made his Major League debut on May 29, 2000 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He pitched 2/3 innings and allowed 2 hits in the Mets 4-1 loss. He was farmed back to the minors a few days later only to return in July. He made his second big league appearance on July 2 against the Atlanta Braves and allowed 3 runs and 4 hits over 2 innings of relief. It would be his last appearance in a Met uniform as he was shipped back to the minors where he finished out the season. Following the season Mann signed as a free agent with the Houston Astros.
