The Buffalo News wrote there is strong indication the Mets will call up Jesus Feliciano and Ruben Tejada this weekend. Tejada could replace the ailing Luis Castillo, though Alex Cora would likely be the starting second baseman. Feliciano, who has a .386 batting average in Triple-A, could replace the struggling Gary Matthews Jr., if the Mets release him.
In other Bisons news, it looks like Daniel Murphy might have had a setback as he hurt his knee in a double-play in yesterday’s game vs. the Syracuse minor league team, the same one that Washington Nationals No. 1 draft pick Stephen Strasburg is pitching for. The Buffalo News Mets blog is reporting Murphy is on crutches and could be headed to New York City for an MRI.
Follow the action as WGRZ-TV’s Ben Hayes is live blogging today’s game in which Strasburg is pitching.
