Mets GM Omar Minaya addressed the media before last night’s game to talk about a flurry of roster moves the Mets made and the one that will be made today. Here’s the breakdown:
- Gary Matthews – designated for assignment and will go home to count his money
- Luis Castillo- on the 15-day disabled list for his bad foot/gimpy legs
- Ruben Tejada- re-called to play second base
- Omir Santos- re-called because Henry Blanco is slightly hurt
- Jon Niese- starting tomorrow and they need to find a roster spot but Oliver Perez won’t leave
Carlos Beltran also played in an extended spring training game but didn’t run. So he’s starting to work his way back.
