Beato Clinches Spot in Bullpen, Are Evans And Izzy Out?
Pedro Beato has been one heck of a player in the spring, and it looks like all his hard work just payed off for him.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman, Pedro Beato is going to be on the Mets opening day roster in the bullpen. This was what Jon Heyman said via Twitter:
Beato to make Mets. 12th pen spot between (between) boyer, Izzy, and Acosta. Emaus is 2b, Harris, Hairston, Hu, Murphy reserves
Speaking of roster spots, as mentioned in Heyman’s tweet, Brad Emaus is going to be the Mets starting 2nd basemen. Like we’ve all thoughht, its all but official. He won out over Daniel Murphy.
The bullpen is going to come down to Blaine Boyer, Jason Isringhausen (Izzy), and Manny Acosta, as we already knew.
As for the reserves, Heyman says that Willie Harris, Scott Hairston, Chin Lung Hu, and Daniel Murphy are going to be the bench players for the Mets. As my colleague Adam V reported yesterday, Terry Collins said he wants to keep Nick Evans somehow. If Jon Heyman is indeed correct with his reserve players, then it looks like Nick Evans will have to clear waivers.
Overall, it seems that it’s all but official. We’ll have to wait and see what Terry Collins does as far as the cuts go. Will he cut Nick Evans as much as he wants him on the team? Will Izzy make the roster with his elbow history?
Stay tuned Mets fans……
