Ruben Tejada Optioned Back to Triple-A Buffalo; Perez Returning Tommorrow?

By Unknown author

The Mets, before tonights game against the Diamondbacks, announced that they optioned Ruben Tejada back down to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for Luis Castillo on the roster. Ruben Tejada has been good for the Mets offensively and defensively and hopefully he becomes a better player when he returns to Citi Field.

In other news, the Mets said today that Oliver Perez is traveling to Arizona to be evalutated by Mets staff. If everythings good, Oliver Perez will be activiated and on the roster tommorrow, which seems unlikely. If his evaluation fails to impress, chances are that Oliver Perez be shipped back down for more rehab. I believe this offseason, the Mets will find some way to get rid of him. No doubt about it.
