The news of the afternoon:
-“Duaner Sanchez”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6948 had his second opinion and will have shoulder surgery, April 10, a procedure that will include inserting a small screw to stabilize the hairline fracture in the front of his shoulder. The Mets are staying four months.
-Juan Padilla’s elbow is still barking so he’ll be re-examined, April 9.
-“Shawn Green”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=5179 is in the lineup tonight. He’s hit Mark Redman well.
-With two off-days last week and another next week, Willie Randolph said he’s more concerned getting his regulars sharp rather than getting playing time for his role players.
