Leiter DLed, Snead Visits

With Al Leiter’s sore shoulder forcing a disabled-list stay, the Mets on Thursday recalled Norfolk outfielder Esix Snead for a short visit. It’s expected the Mets will send him back Saturday so that Tyler Yates 33 can take Al’s turn in the rotation. You might remember Snead from his brief appearance in 2002 (including his game-winning HR against the Expos in a meaningless September game). He wore No. 23 then; this time he appeared in No. 1 and displayed a Mookielike quickness scoring from first base as a pinch-runner.
