Young DL'd, Misch Recalled, Mets In Trouble: Mets Lineup Vs. Braves Game 1 - April 16, 2011

"Rock bottom always has a trap door."
Mantra Addicts Are Cautious Of ~

This should become the Mets slogan for 2011. It was announced moments ago that the Mets best pitcher this season, Chris Young, has been placed on the DL. So much for a "mild" strain or tendinitis.

With Young's assignment to the DL, the Mets have recalled lefty long reliever/spot starter Pat Misch. Misch was released by the Mets at the end of Spring Training this year, but passed through waivers and was assigned to Buffalo (AAA).

Sunday's starter is not yet announced, but my gut tells me it might be fellow AAA starter, and Spring Training standout, Dillon Gee.

Today's Lineup for game 1 of the doubleheader against the Braves:

1. Reyes-SS
2. Pagan-CF

3. Wright-3B

4. Beltran-RF

5. Davis-1B
6. Harris-LF

7. Emaus-2B

8. Thole-C

9. Carrasco-RHP

Adam Rubin (Chris Young), Steve Popper (Lineup)
