Paul Lo Duca dropped the appeal of his two-game suspension and will begin serving it tonight.
This enables the Mets to option veteran catcher Sandy Alomar Jr., back to Triple-A New Orleans to make room for Sunday’s starter, who will be lefthander Dave Williams.
Williams is on the way here as I write this.
Also, Carlos Gomez is in New York to see a hand specialist. Gomez was injured when he struck out in the sixth inning of last night’s game. The Mets are saying this will likely be a DL thing.
No, Moises Alou won’t take his spot. That would be David Newhan, who arrived here from New Orleans.
