Mets News and Notes: Beltran Update, Bullpen Decisions


PORT ST. LUCIE, FL - FEBRUARY 24:  RY 24:  Tim...
According to :



Beltran will play five innings in right field on Saturday in a minor-league game.

He did not run hard today, a day after testing his legs in a simulated game. Beltran went 5-for-11, including a pair of hits off Chris Young, with two doubles.

Tim Byrdak sealed up a spot in the major-league bullpen as the left-handed specialist. The Mets selected his contract and added him to the 40-man roster. Mike O’Connor, his main competition, was sent down to minor-league camp.

That means one spot in the seven-man bullpen is left. These six appear locked: Francisco Rodriguez, Bobby Parnell, D.J. Carrasco, Taylor Buchholz, Pedro Beato and Byrdak.

Those vying for the final spot: Jason Isringhausen (tagged for four runs in that minor-league game today), Blaine Boyer, Pat Misch and Manny Acosta.
