Yesterday, outfielder Angel Pagan got into his first game since going down with a strained left oblique. Pagan went 1-for-4 with a walk while playing five innings in an extended spring training game in Port St. Lucie.
It was originally reported by some that the oblique strain suffered by Pagan could take a minimum of three weeks to fully heal, but it now appears that Pagan may make it back in the minimum 15 days. He is eligible to be activated this Saturday
The real question becomes who the Mets cut bait with to make room for Pagan.
The three likely candidates would be one of Jason Pridie who has been a nice surprise defensively and offensively since joining the team, Scott Hairston who has underwhelmed, and Willie Harris who has come up woefully short for the Mets.
The odds are that Pridie heads back to Buffalo, but I hope they cut Hairston or Harris instead.
