Mets Cut Lefty Reliever Loose

An article by posted on March 25, 2009

Adam Rubin of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets have released lefthanded reliever Valerio de los Santos.

The veteran reliever, who was in major-league camp at the start of the spring, had drawn positive reviews, including for his willingness to help young players, but he got caught up in a numbers game.

This probably bodes well for Ron Villone more than anyone else. (He just got tagged for 4 runs as I write this.)

I have a strong feeling Bobby Parnell may be close to locking up a spot in the pen. So many good things are being said about his performance this spring by Manuel, Schneider and most of the Mets beat writers.
