Nieve to DL; Sullivan promoted

Posted: July 20, 2009 in Mets

As expected, Fernando Nieve becomes the latest of the MASH Unit Mets, hitting the DL with a quad injury suffered in last night’s loss to the Braves.
Outfielder Cory Sullivan takes Nieve’s spot on the roster. Sullivan, who was up and down quite a bit with the Rockies the last few years, was hitting .290 at Triple-A Buffalo. He’s got some speed, very little power. It might be a short stay for Sullivan, as the Mets will likely recall a starter for the weekend series against Houston. I’m hoping it will be Jon Niese, he’s earned it.
