According to MLB.com, Anderson Hernandez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a herniated disk. Kazui Matsui has been recalled from AAA Norfolk where he was rehabbing. Say what you will about Matsui, but he represents a colossal upgrade over Hern. The team desperately needs Cliff Floyd and Carlos Beltran to return, but at least with Matsui at second the Mets can move Chris Woodward to left field and stop giving Jose Valentin regular at-bats.
