Ryan Church played the DH for the Brooklyn Cyclones last night and went 3 for 3. He’s scheduled to play the field tonight in Brooklyn. Manager Jerry Manuel said there’s a chance that Church could be activated for Sunday’s Mets game against the Yankees.
Church left a hole in the Mets lineup the size of Flushing when he got hurt last month with his second concussion of the season. The Mets need him back, at full strength, badly.
It’ll be interesting to see what the Mets do to make room on the roster for Church. Most likely Marlon Anderson or Trot Nixon will be designated for assignment. Both would have to clear waivers, but I doubt that they would be claimed. Anderson might not want to go to New Orleans and opt to be a free agent but Nixon may go to Triple-A. Nixon started the season in Triple-A with the D-Backs organization.
