The Mets and Giants are scheduled to make up Sunday’s wash out with a single-admission double header Monday starting at 4:10pm. The new rule in 2012 allows for teams to expand their roster to 26 for double-dips, and it appears the Mets are still deciding. Jordany Valdespin and Jeremy Hefner are both in Flushing and both in uniform, but it has not yet been announced which one will get the official call-up.
Valdespin opened some eyes in Spring Training, and is off to a nice start in Triple-A Buffalo with 2 home runs and 7 RBI. The middle infielder is one of the top position players in the Mets farm system, and it would definitely be intriguing to watch him play. But let’s remember- this is a roster expansion for 24 hours only, and it is specifically meant to give the team an extra body to handle the rigors of two games in one day. Because of that, the call up HAS to go to pitcher Jeremy Hefner.
