The Mets sent Jordany Valdespin down to Buffalo to make room for Lucas Duda, the team announced on Twitter Sunday morning. Yet Andres Torres remains on the roster.
Valdespin has been struggling of late — he is hitting just .163 in August, but he is still more of a spark plugs that the listless Torres. Does Sandy Alderson really think the Mets are better with Torres in the lineup rather than Valdespin?
Valdespin certainly will be recalled once the rosters expand on September 1. Still though, this is an undeserved, albeit brief, demotion.
