Mets Notes: Tatis At 1B, Santos Catching Again, Murphy Out
Fernando Tatis will be at first base tonight when the Mets take the field against the Florida Marlins.
Carlos Delgado who was originally scheduled for a day off on Wednesday, will sit this one out due to a sore hip. For Tatis, it will be his first start of the season at first base.
Delgado won’t be the only regular player riding the bench for the game, as left fielder Daniel Murphy will be keeping him company. Jerry Manuel will go with Gary Sheffield instead as he seeks to add some more right handed pop to the lineup.
Finally, Omir Santos may have unseated Ramon Castro as the backup catcher to Brian Schneider. Santos will be making his third start in a row going back to the game when Ramon Castro one handed a foul popup and dropped the ball.
This isn’t official, but it certainly looks like it. Santos is batting .294, almost 100 points higher than Castro who is struggling with a .197 batting average.
