The Mets add another player to the disabled list today in Fernando Nieve. He strained his right quad while running out a chopper in Atlanta last night.

Cory Sullivan will replace him on the roster for now. He was hitting .290 with 2 HR and 24 RBI in 286 AB at Triple-A Buffalo.

I would assume that Jon Niese will take Nieve’s spot in the rotation next time around. If not, it’ll be a major shock.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
