Mets DFA Gary Matthews Jr., Recall Omir Santos
The New York Mets have pulled the plug on Gary Matthews Jr. and will recall Catcher Omir Santos from AA Binghamton.
Matthews Jr., or GMJ for short, came over from the Los Angeles Angels for Brian Stokes, shortly after Carlos Beltran hit the DL.
GMJ has an unremarkable .190/.266/.241 line in 65 plate appearances, following a good Spring Training.
Omir Santos has been horrific since moving to the minors after the signing of Rod Barajas forced him out.
Santos holds an .074/.167/.111 line in eight games since being demoted from AAA Buffalo.
BTW: I know you’re wondering how Brian Stokes is doing in Anaheim. Let’s say that the trade has no winners. Stokes has a 7.31 ERA and 2.50 WHIP in 16 IP.
Adam Rubin writes that the Mets chose Santos over Jesus Feliciano because backup Henry Blanco is banged up. He writes that Feliciano will be called up as soon as Henry Blanco is alright.
