Sean Green To DL, Raul Valdes Could Get Call
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, the Mets are planning to make a couple of moves in time for Sundays finale against the Nationals.
Left-hander Raul Valdes, a Cuban defector who impressed manager Jerry Manuel during spring training, is believed to be headed to Citi Field for the series finale against the Washington Nationals, sources told ESPNNewYork.
The corresponding move is expected to be placing right-hander Sean Green on the disabled list. According to a team source, Green has been dealing with a small tear in the rib-cage area. Green allowed a solo homer to Florida’s Dan Uggla on Wednesday in his lone regular-season appearance.
I actually felt that Valdes was going to make the team out of spring training at the time and was surprised when the Mets opted to go with Green instead. Valdes had a 2.06 ERA in six appearances, allowing one run and three hits while striking out four in 4 1/3 innings. He is on loan from Tabasco in the Mexican League.
Valdes was 0-1, with a 3.68 ERA in 20 games with Double-A Binghamton that season.
