Off day for the Mets, but the fields in Port St. Lucie were busy with minor league intra-squad games on Monday.
One note from today as RHP Tony Armas Jr. was reassigned to minor league camp.
The 30-year old put up some great numbers with New Orleans last season before being hampered by an abdominal muscle strain. Check out these numbers in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League – 2.54ERA, 102.2IP, 85H, 20BB, 88K.
Armas has plenty of big league experience. A 12-game winner with Montreal in 2002, the Venezuelan-native is 53-65 with a 4.65ERA in 185 big league games.
And speaking of pitching…
Johan Santana will not travel with the Mets on Tuesday to play Atlanta. Instead, the Mets ace will throw in a minor league intra-squad game at the team’s complex.
