TOSSED - 3B - Jhoan Urena

Mets infield prospect Jhoan Urena's quest to stay on the field longer than anyone else came to an ironic end Monday.
After the national anthem prior to Monday's game at Staten Island, Brooklyn's Urena was standing on the foul line in front of the visiting dugout, staring down the Staten Island bench -- it was unclear whether the 19-year-old was competing against a specific Yankee player, though.
Home plate umpire Ryan Wilhelms twice warned Urena to back down. After the third baseman refused, Wilhelms tossed him.
"He was ejected for delay of game in accordance with a memo from Minor League Baseball sent out about national anthem standoffs," Wilhelms said.
