Outfielder Cory Sullivan will be taking pitcher Fernando Neive’s place on the roster tonight against the Washington Nationals. He will be wearing number 19.
Nieve has been place on the disabled list. Oh there’s a surprise! We all knew that was happening.
I keep wondering why bring up Sullivan. Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post said in a tweet Sullivan was picked over Nick Evans because Sullivan is more versatile.
The Mets have not decided on bringing up Jonathan Niese. It is being speculated he will be brought up on Saturday. Jerry Manuel said he was surprised that Niese was not chosen to replace to Nieve.
Why should he be? He’s the one who has been reluctant to bring the kid up.
Sullivan has had decent numbers in Triple-A Buffalo with an average of .290, two home runs and 24 RBIs in 85 games.
