Mets Official Opening Day Roster

The Mets made two last minute moves and placed pitchers Pedro Beato (shoulder stiffness) and D.J. Carrasco (sprained ankle) on the disabled list today in advance of Opening Day tomorrow afternoon. The moves opened up roster spots for reliever Miguel Batista and outfielder Mike Baxter.

Relievers Tim Byrdak (knee) and Frank Francisco (knee) will both avoid the DL as will outfielder Andres Torres (calf). The Mets Opening Day Roster is now set and as follows:
