Thole Called Up; Blanco on Bereavement

An article by posted on May 10, 2010

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Henry Blanco has been placed on the bereavement list which has forced the Mets to call Josh Thole up to fill his roster spot.

Thole has struggled in AAA posting a .203 AVG with 1 HR and 10 RBI in 21 games for Buffalo. It will be interesting to see if Thole gets a start in this series versus Washington, one would assume if he does, it’ll be Wednesday afternoon.

No word yet on the reasons for Blanco’s leave of absence but we hope all is well with Henry and his family.
