The Mets have placed closer Francisco Rodriguez on the restricted list for two days without pay and have promoted Ryota Igarashi from Triple-A Buffalo. Two days’ pay for K-Rod is $125,683.06.
“Ownership and the organization are very disappointed in Francisco’s inappropriate behavior and we take the matter very seriously,” chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said in a statement.
This is just the Mets trying to buy some time while they figure out what to do next.
If Manuel thought he had problems playing an entire season without a setup man, imagine how he feels now. Or maybe he just sees it as a way to keep K-Rod fresh?
