Mets Give Javier Valentin and Wily Mo Pena The Boot
According to several sources including Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, the Buffalo Bisons released outfielder/first baseman Wily Mo Pena and infielder Javier Valentin today.
The Mets released two veterans, outfielder Wily Mo Pena and infielder Javier Valentin, from Triple-A Buffalo today while activating newly claimed left-handed reliever Arturo Lopez to the Bisons’ roster. Pena had five homers and 21 RBIs in 41 games for Buffalo, while Valentin had been mired on the disabled list recently. I’m hearing Pena might have asked for his release after being passed over in favor of Nick Evans for a promotion last week.
I don’t blame Pena if he wanted out after the Nick Evans promotion, he was having a decent season at Buffalo and the Mets could have used his power bat while letting Evans stay in the minors and playing everyday.
Pena was batting .276 with 5 homers and 21 RBI in 41 games. Valentin was batting .260 with 3 homers and 10 RBI in 23 games.
