The Mets cut Soler today. I really didn’t see him earning a spot on the major league team. Last year he was 2-3 with a 6.00 ERA, the complete game shutout against the D-Backs was great, but other than that I was never impressed. He looked out of shape, and inconsistent for most of his starts. Read the ESPN report at:
Personally, I like Pelfrey, Perez, and Maine for the final three spots in the rotation. Sele is totally washed up, Sosa could be the long man, and Humber needs more time. Vargas pitched today, and gave up two runs over three innings. I need to see more of him before I rush to judgment. It looks like Vargas has options so we’ll probably see him in Norfolk for much of the season.
