According to Anthony Rieber of Newsday, Moises Alou was scratched from a minor league game last night due to a sore ankle. Alou is coming back from hernia surgery, which he received before the season.
Alou is rumored to be coming back sometime next week, but nothing can be done until Brian Schneider is able to rejoin the team, or in a worst case scenario, hits the disabled list. When Schneider went down, Gustavo Molina was purchased from AAA to give the Mets an extra catcher.
The Mets are carrying three catchers right now, since Schneider is still on the roster though not at the games. Until Schneider is ready to return to the team, Molina will be up, taking up a roster spot and blocking Alou.
Schneider received more IV, and is still in the hospital through Sunday. Hopefully he'll be out soon and back with the team.
