A Few Player Notes…

Mets Claim Nieve
New York has claimed RHP Fernando Nieve off waivers from the Houston Astros. The 26-year old was 0-1 with an 8.44ERA in 11 games with the Astros last year. He was also 2-5 with 6 saves and a 5.72ERA in 36 games with Triple-A Round Rock of the PCL.

Crowded Camp
The Mets still have 52 players in big league camp with only 23 days until their Opening Day. A big reason for that is the World Baseball Classic, to which the Mets sent a league-high 16 players. The list includes four players – Carlos Beltran (3-3, HR, 2RBI), Carlos Delgado (1-4, 2RBI), Jesus Feliciano (2H) and Nelson Figueroa (1.1IP, 0R) -that contributed to Puerto Rico’s 11-1 thumping of Team USA on Saturday night.

Roster Moves
The list of players that have been re-assigned to minor league camp include:

C Josh Thole
RHP Valerio de los Santos
LHP Michael Antonini
RHP Tobi Stoner
LHP Adam Bostick
RHP Dillon Gee
OF Rob Mackowiak
OF Fernando Martinez
INF Jose Coronado
INF Michel Abreu

As far as Sunday’s game, a largely pro-Mets crowd went home happy with a 10-5 victory over the Marlins. New York scored six runs in the seven-inning, anchored by a two-run triple from Luis Castillo.
