Jordany Valdespin was called up from Buffalo in what seems to be a precautionary move in regards to exactly the extent that Ronny Cedeno’s injured calf is hurt. During the press conference, Terry Collins said that Cedeno was currently being examined by doctors, and when asked of his opinion of Ronny’s condition said “He’s ok – not good. The tests will determine what happens to Cedeno”
If Cedeno is injured, it seems as if Omar Quintinilla would get the lion’s share of the playing time, and calling up Valdespin in addition to the condition of Ruben Tejada’s slowly-improving quad injury says that it may be a longer road back then expected.
This post will be updated with the definitive diagnosis of Ronny Cedeno’s injured calf.
Ronny Cedeno has been placed on the DL retroactive to May 27th with a lower leg injury.
Valdespin will be taking his spot on the roster, and with Cedeno eligible to come off the DL by June 11th hopefully Ruben Tejada will be in shape to return to the team soon as well.
