Mets Comings and Goings

Marty Noble gives us the scoop in his latest opus. Lots of tidbits crammed into this piece, including:

  • Howard Johnson will almost certainly inherit most of Rick Down's hitting coach duties.
  • Lastings Milledge has been recalled for tonight's game and will likely be the everyday left fielder.
  • Either Sandy Alomar Jr. or David Newhan will be sent down to accommodate Milledge's arrival (likely Alomar).
  • Oliver Perez will probably start Sunday in the series finale against the Reds.
  • Dave Williams (not Mike Pelfrey) will probably be sent to New Orleans to make room for Perez.
  • Pelfrey has only earned a temporary stay of execution, as Jorge Sosa is expected to make just a single rehab start within the next week before rejoining the team.
Good news for the starting rotation, as Perez and Sosa both sound like they will be back in the fold within the next week or two.
