Adam Rubin, whose new employment starts when ESPNNewYork.com launches Friday, has been told by a major-league source that Sean Green and Bobby Parnell both are expected to open the season at Triple-A Buffalo.
…wow, so, i guess this must mean Nelson Figueroa will be making the 25–man roster, i would think…
In Rubin’s view, he told me in an e-mail, Hisanori Takahashi and Figueroa will likely make the Opening Day roster, which would leave room for one of Jenrry Mejia or Kiko Calero.
Also, Rubin says C Chris Coste has been placed on waivers, meaning any team can claim him before he is sent to Triple-a Buffalo.
According to Rubin, if Coste clears waivers, he likely will accept an assignment to Triple-A.
