The Mets finalized their Opening Day roster by doing the following:
-Adding outfielder Lastings Milledge and Ambiorix Burgos. (They also made it official on David Newhan).
-Optioned Chan Ho Park to Class AAA New Orleans, which required Park’s approval because of his veteran status (over 11 years).
-Outrighted reliever Jon Adkins to Class AAA New Orleans, which means he’s off the 40-man roster. I confess, I didn’t think of this one.
-Announced would open the season in the minor leagues and start a game in the Florida State League, April 7, and rejoin the rotation, April 13.
