Manuel Poised to Make a Big Decision?

ed feverCorrespondent IJune 2, 2016

As seen on NY Mets Global.

Tonight’s lineup will feature Fernando Tatis batting second and playing second, Gary Sheffield in left batting sixth, and Omir Santos catching and batting eighth.

With Brian Schneider expected back this Sunday, Manuel appears to be giving Santos as many opportunities as possible to prove that he, and not Castro, belongs on the club.

With the Mets having looked to deal Castro all winter, Castro's struggles at and behind the plate this year, and the recent release of Marlon Anderson, it appears entirely possible that Santos and not Castro will be the Mets backup catcher when Schneider returns.
