Kyle Farnsworth, Wilmer Flores To Join Team In NY


The Mets will be adding Kyle Farnsworth to the 40 man roster to replace Bobby Parnell who is headed to the disabled list with a partial MCL tear in his right elbow.

The Mets are also calling up Wilmer Flores to replace Daniel Murphy who will be placed on paternity leave after celebrating the birth of his son on Monday. He’ll miss up to three days beginning on Wednesday.

By adding Farnsworth to the 40 they will also need to clear up a spot and cut someone. They could just put Parnell on the 60-day DL immediately speculates Jared Diamond of the WSJ.

We’ll know soon enough, but the Mets say both Flores and Farnsworth are expected to be with the club on Wednesday when they play the the second game of their series with the Nationals.

Flores won’t be here long, probably just a taxi squad move. But the Farnsworth promotion was odd. I guess the team is really down on Vic Black.
