“Moises Alou”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=4517 showed up this morning and said he’s not ready to come off the DL and says next weekend. He’ll return with the team to NY after the game.
“Could I play Tuesday? Yes, but I’m not 100 percent,” Alou said. “And, the whole idea of going on the DL was to get to 100 percent.”
Carlos Gomez’s hammy is still tight, so he’s down for today. As is Shawn Green. Damion Easley will play left today, a position he’s never played before.
Should the Mets need a pinch-hitter, Tom Glavine and Oliver Perez could get a call.
