We continue to sit and await the results of the Josh Edgin MRI, I’m starting to think that the Mets use the Veteran’s Administration to achieve their medical goals.
The least that’s going to come out of this is an inflammation report and, at least, 7-10 days not pitching.
Reporters are way ahead of me speculation on the alternatives available to the Mets… Dario Alvarez, Sean Gilmartin, Jack Leathersich, and Scott Rice. Right now, Rice looks to be alternate #1, though it still would take a 40-man move to get him on the active roster.
Well, let’s first look at the RHRP options that this team does have:
Jenrry Mejia, Jeurys Familia, Vic Black, Dillon Gee, Eric Goeddel, Cory Mazzoni, Rafael Montero, and Carlos Torres.
And then there’s Bobby Parnell, who should be ready sometime in mid-April.
Mejia, Familia, Black, and Torres will definitely go north.
The rest of the pen will come from this list since it seems like every pitcher on this team has the cooties and no other team wants anything to do with them.
Is there a chance that the Mets break camp with a 25-man that has no lefty in the pen?
I don’t think so, but it may just be one (for now) and his name may be Rice.
