Report: Anderson On Disabled List And Evans Called Up

According to the NY Post Marlon Anderson’s strained hamstring, suffered in last night’s game in Colorado, has forced him to the disabled list.

The Mets have called up 22 year old first basemen Nick Evans from Double-A Binghamton. He’s hitting .292 with 8 HR’s and 31 RBI’s in 171 at-bats. He’s also played a little outfield.

It’s telling that the Mets aren’t calling up an outfielder with Ryan Church still not starting because of his concussion in Atlanta and Moises Alou on the disabled list. Clearly, they’re trying to evaluate if they have someone that can play first base if they unload Carlos Delgado. Presumably, Delgado has no trade value so the roster move would have to be designating him for assignment.

That may be one of the roster shake up’s that we see after Willie Randolph is fired this coming week.

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.
