Let's take a quick look at the Mets' disabled list since the beginning of the season.
April: pitchers D.J. Carrasco (sprained right ankle) and Mike Pelfrey (Tommy John surgery); outfielders Andres Torres (left calf) and Jason Bay (rib fracture); shortstop Ronny Cedeño (left intercostal muscle).
May: shortstop Rubén Tejada (right calf); pitcher Pedro Beato (elbow tendinitis); catcher Josh Thole (concussion).
In the first two months of the season, the Mets have shuttled eight players between CitiField and Triple-A Buffalo or Double-A Binghamton to plug those holes in the roster. Infielder Jordany Valdespin, who smacked a game-winning home run for his first major league hit, has made two round trips from Buffalo to New York.
All of the players who have been called up would have made the major league roster sooner or later. With all of the Mets injuries, there's a lot more sooner than later.
With that in mind, here are some predictions for when we might see some of the Mets' top farmhands in the major leagues.
