After pulling his hamstring in last night’s extra innings loss to the Rockies, Marlon Anderson will join a host of other Mets on the disabled list, leaving the Mets without yet another outfielder.
Taking Anderson’s roster spot will be 22 year old 1B Nick Evans, who becomes the first player since Mike Pelfrey to join the Mets straight from Double-A Binghamton. Evans has hit well for the B-Mets this year, hitting .292, .356, .538 with 8 HR and 31 RBIs. Evans hits extremely well against lefties–he has an OPS of 1.097 against southpaws.
Interesting move here; I’m not going to judge until I see him play. I would have expected Mike Carp to get the call, but I guess the Mets player development people consider Evans more major league ready.
