Announcing the New York Mets fifth starter: Livan Hernandez!
That's the message the Mets are sending today, as young gun Jon Niese has been sent to minor league camp.
Hernandez all but tied up the spot on the team on Wednesday with five smooth innings, allowing only one run. Niese was Hernandez's closest compeition, especially since Freddy Garcia is a shell of his former self.
Interesting move. I figured this would play out a little longer than it did.
