The Mets will be sending six players to the Arizona Fall League to play for the Surprise Rafters.
The Mets announced the following minor league players will participate in the Arizona Fall League…Infielders Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada, righthanded pitchers Jenrry Mejia, Scott Moviel and Josh Stinson and lefthanded pitcher Eric Niesen will play for the Surprise Rafters…The AFL begins on October 13th.
These are some of the top players in the Mets minor league system. The fact that they’re sending them to play more baseball is a good thing for the future of the franchise.
Let’s just hope the 2009 injury bug ends when the season does.
