According to Bart Hubbach’s Twitter feed, the Mets have sent down Elmer Dessens and promoted catcher Robinson Cancel.
Furthermore, Omar Minaya has a press conference scheduled for 11 AM.
Does this mean Brian Schneider has been dealt for a LOOGY?
** UPDATE **
As suggested by commenter “Ellie” (Hendricks?), the Mets promoted Cancel to fortify the bench, as Schneider’s legs are ailing.
Though, the definition of “fortify” could be called into question, as Cancel is hitting .218 with a .266 OBP and .259 SLG at AAA Buffalo. It was Cancel or Rene Rivera, and Cancel is already on the 40-man roster.
