Bye Bye, Schwinden

Just out from the Mets: Chris Schwinden to Triple-A. Vinny Rottino up.
Rottino can help. He’s got a solid bat, can play some catcher when Terry Collins wants to rest Josh Thole without punting both the 8 and 9 slots in his batting order, and will probably spot Ike Davis against lefties again soon if his recent uptick in performance doesn’t stick around.
The move is probably temporary, however. The Mets need a fifth starter. Unless Miguel Batista is moved to the rotation and the Mets go with 11 pitchers, figure Rottino heads back down once the new fifth starter is called up, or sooner if Ronny Cedeno gets healthy.
