To make room for Jorge Sosa, the Mets optioned Ambiorix Burgos to the minors. Burgos had an awful start, but has improved. Still, the confidence level for him isn’t there. He needs more work than he will get at this level.
Makes sense. Everytime out he was a threat to give up the long ball. I’m assuming that Sosa will move to the bullpen when El Duque comes back and that Urdaneta will be optioned at that time. Then Sosa will have to go to make room for Mota.
I’ve seen enough of Burgos to know that he can get big league hitters out, but I wouldnt trust him in a close game. I like that they are going to give Urdaneta a chance to show them what he can do.
side note, Burgos would have been a ‘super two’ arbitration qualifier if he had stayed in the bigs all year. This move give the Mets control over Burgos for four more years instead of three. Bonus!
was Park optioned or DFA?
mlb.com says he was optioned, but has removed him from the 40 man roster. Whats up there?
Mets would have 41 on the 40 man if Park is included and no one was transfered to the 60 day DL…
Park was DFA’d, but he accepted the assignment. I guess he couldn’t find work elsewhere? ;)
I happen to like Burgos, I can’t believe he was sent down…thats crazy i just bought a damn burgos #40 jersey! damn it!
i cant believe i spent my money on that, even though its nice…pinstripes #40 BURGOS
Really? Burgos? Well that’s cool that you branched out a little. Maybe a Feliciano? ;)
nah my buddy brendan got Sele lol maybe i’ll talk someone into getting feliciano
