The Mets have some decisions to make in the next couple of days. Jason Bay stint on the DL expired yesterday. The Rib cage strain that warranted a trip to the DL has made the climb back a slow one which of course was expected. Bay hit off a tee yesterday and today is expected to see some live pitching from some of the Mets coaches down in Pt St Lucie. If all goes well Bay might be ready to join the team when the Mets hit the road next weekend for a 3 game set against the Braves.
Ronnie Paulino stint on the suspended list is over . He of course is dealing with Anemia. It is likely that he might be put on the DL sometime today. Like after I post this blog post which seems to happen to me frequently. He will join Bay for some hitting at Pt St Lucie today. Update-Paulino moves to the 15 day DL
Izzy is ready to role and has no back issues. He and the Mets agreed for a 2 week stint in extended spring training for Izzy. Week 1 is over but no word of a call up. Blaine Boyer who bet Izzy out for the last spot has been up and down in his outings so far but its only 1 week into the season. -Update- Izzy joins Mets and Boyer DFA'd
Mets play the Nationals in the rubber game today with Chris Young on the mound.
