After reaching a deal with Scott Hairston and Ronny Cedeno this past week, the Mets will need to make some cuts.
According to Adam Rubin, two players will need to be cut in order to make room on the 40-man roster. His list of possible candidates include:
RHP Armando RodriguezRHP D.J. CarrascoRHP Jeremy HefnerOF Fernando MartinezLHP Daniel HerreraRHP Chris SchwindenIF Josh SatinIF Justin Turner
In my opinion, the two who should get the boot are Fernando Martinez and D.J. Carrasco.
At this point, I consider Martinez to be a lost cause. During the summer when Martinez landed on the disabled list again, the NY Post pointed out that, "The outfielder, once considered one of the top prospects in baseball, has never played more than 90 games in any of his five professional seasons due to various injuries." Time to say goodbye.
Carrasco didn't impress me at all last season. He finished the 2011 season with a 6.02 ERA, and opponents were hitting .337 off him. Get rid of him and his ugly stirrups.
