Armas In, Vargas Out
According to Adam Rubin, Tony Armas Jr. has finally worked out his visa issues and reported to Mets training camp. Better late than never … next time try MasterCard, Tony.
However, Jason Vargas may be out for three months … or not. The mysterious hip injury that Vargas may have caught from Carlos Delgado could require surgery that would sideline him for a minimum of three months. He was getting a second opinion in Colorado over the weekend; we’ll update you when we get the news.
With Vargas apparently out, El Duque still a question mark, and Armas reporting with only two weeks left of spring training, it would appear that Mike Pelfrey is almost a cinch to make the 25-man roster.
