d’Arnaud update; RHP Burke Demoted, Turner Activated

Mar 11, 2012; Lakeland, FL, USA; New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud

 

Top Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud was evaluated by doctors in New York on Monday and subsequently cleared to play in minor league games later this week. On Tuesday and Wednesday, he will run the bases and on Thursday will play in his first minor league game in St. Lucie. d’Arnaud, who has been on the disabled list since April with a fractured first metatarsal, is expected to be a September call-up.

Meanwhile, the Mets have optioned RHP Greg Burke to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear a spot for INF Justin Turner, who was activated from the DL after suffering a strained intercostal muscle on his left side.

    I would really like to see the Mets go after Mike Morse and here is the reason. Let’s face it, the Mets need to move Marlon Byrd and with that goes outfield power. With all the outfielders the Mets have, none of them have power. They are great defensively, but no power. Morse would give the Mets a power outfielder and power off the bench and they can probably pick him up on waivers.
