Dave Williams was placed on the roster to start today against Houston. To make room, outfielder Ricky Ledee was designated for assignment and Sandy Alomar Jr., kept on the 25-man. Part of the reason is because Alomar caught Williams at Triple-A.
This also enables Willie Randolph to use Ramon Castro as a right-handed pinch-hitter.
-Orlando Hernandez, John Maine and Tom Glavine will start the first three games of the second half.
-The Mets say progress is being made, but wouldn’t commit to when Oliver Perez and Jorge Sosa will come off the DL.
-Randolph said by the end of next week the Mets would have a better idea of when Lastings Milledge could be recalled.
