Nagging injuries will probably force Jerry Manuel to sit Carlos Delgado and Luis Castillo when the Mets face the Marlins again tonight. That might not be a bad thing considering how well the Mets played without them last night.
Delgado still has some soreness in his hip after he slid into third base during Sunday’s game. Castillo is still dealing with some back spasms.
Fernando Tatis will likely fill in for Delgado again and Alex Cora will step in for Castillo at second. Although Castillo has been playing great, it’s still nice to see some of the backups get some playing time.
