I’m only trying to stay out of the way and let the Mets do what they will, but ought to note two new additions to the roster, our old friend Dilson Herrera and pitcher Tim Stauffer. As discussed in comments below, Herrera was issued No. 16, which technically became available upon Danny Muno’s removal from the 40-man roster when Addison Reed climbed aboard.
Stauffer is a former 1st round pick of the Padres whose journeyman career most recently saw him released by Minnesota this summer and signed to a minor league deal with the Mets. Stauffer, presumably up in case the Mets need a Carlos Torres-type relief appearance while Carlos Torres rests a sore calf, was issued No. 54, last seen on the back of another un-40ed Met, Alex Torres.
These additions are notable in that they’ve brought the Mets active roster to include 38 men, tying the all-time record (with 1967) for Most Guys in the Clubhouse at Once. Amazin’!
