Mets Opening Day Bullpen Getting Clearer
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York projects the Mets Opening Day bullpen as follows:
- Frank Francisco
- Jon Rauch
- Ramon Ramirez
- Manny Acosta
- Bobby Parnell
- Miguel Batista
- Garrett Olson or Josh Edgin
He says Miguel Batista is a “pretty solid” bet for making the Opening Day roster, and that D.J. Carrasco is likely to start the season on the disabled list because of a twisted ankle.
One more thing of note regarding Batista:
The Mets must make a decision on Batista no later than five days prior to Opening Day.New CBA rules dictate that Mets must keep him on the 25-man roster, pay him $100,000 to go to the minor leagues, or they must grant him free agency.
Prospect Josh Edgin continues to impress with 6.2 scoreless innings allowing just two hits while striking out eight and walking two.
Garrett Olson is also having a solid spring posting a 1.59 ERA in 5.2 innings.
