Kyle Farnsworth 2

Flores and Farnsworth will be in New York on Wednesday

Wilmer Flores and Kyle Farnsworth will be in New York with the team on Wednesday, the Mets announced.

Farsnworth will likely replace Bobby Parnell, who has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament >> Read more on MetsBlog. He will need to be added to the 40-man roster.

Daniel Murphy’s wife gave birth to their first son on Monday and he is likely to go on paternity leave, which will open a spot for Flores (Carig, April 1).

The Mets have to add Farnsworth to the 40-man? That means they have to make a corresponding move. Being that we are uselessly carrying 3 first basemen, does that mean one of them will finally be gone? I am hoping to wake up in 4 hours to see that Lucas Duda was DFA'd. I will be one happy man if that is the case!

Nunez can't hit and can't field. I don't see the point of us, or anyone, picking him up.

Really no Vic Black? I think not bringing him up was a mistake. Valverde should be our new closer but Black should be the 8th inning guy.

This could be a good pickup for the Mets although he did butcher shortstop back in the day:

Courtesy of RotoWorld:  Yankees designated INF Eduardo Nunez for assignment.

Yangervis Solarte won the Yankees' utility infield gig this spring, making Nunez expendable. The 26-year-old is a .267/.313/.379 career hitter at the major league level, but he may still draw interest on waivers. Nunez was once considered a potential successor to Derek Jeter at the shortstop position in New York.

I figured they'd bring up Farnsworth. I was kinda hoping they'd bring up Montero instead. Cheap organization super-2 loving losers lol

Time for Vic Black to show what he can do.

Remember when the Cards brought Wainwright up in the bullpen and let him experience the majors on a smaller level? How'd that end up working out for him long run, as a starter? Keep Montero down though. Good thinking by idiotic organization. Give Montero the chance for God's sake.....

I know he's a butcher in the field but yanks just DFA's Nunez. Why not take a chance and put him at SS?

The BULLPEN is the biggest problem on this team, why not take a page out of the Cards, Giants, A's, Rays and Royals book! and stack up the Pen with young arms!!!! we have plenty of them!!!

Alderson said again if attendance improves and wears in contention then maybe will spend money to get someone. Why isn't it that you get players tobe in contention andthen watch the attendance to improve. Alderson is just a mouthpiece collecting a check from the Wilpons to not spend money, deceive fans about the future, and hope we are all fools. Wish fans would just protest some day - go to the game and refuse to go into the stadium. Maybe losing more money might get some action.

Why is farnsowrth being brought up? He had a awful spring. Bring up Vic Black or Jeff Walters.

I seriously think this team mailed it in after the Harvey surgery, I just dont understand why bring up German and Farnworth who were god awful this Spring over the young arms who were impressive and had a solid Spring

On opening day I just kept cheering c'mon Flores, every time Tejada AB'd, but maybe this could be fun too.

Couldn't Dice-K serve as a reliever? He pitch great during the Spring training games.

Farnsworth? Seriously? There is no one who could use experience on the farm? It isnt like this team is going to win 90 this year

@ponzies86 Look at what the Padres did a few years ago. They had no offense and their bullpen was amazing as it carried them to the last game of the year.

It's not that hard to figure out if you don't have the $ you can't get the players.If attendance improves you have more $ so you can get better players.The $has to come first.The problem is to many people will not support the team if it is not winning a real catch22.

@nyjnym  I guess Farnsy is being brought up on the basis of his resume not his spring.


None of these guys are going to have long leashes

@Alan Wong  I dont see it happening, Dice K needs a lot of time to just warm up.

@Mike  I wouldve brought up DeGrom, or one of the other young arms that were impressive this Spring

@Ed Yano  Didn't the Mets receive $25 mil from TV Revenues??? Where did that $$ go to? It didn't go towards obtaining better players that what we got, right?
