Adam Rubin is reporting that the New York Mets will put Justin Turner on the DL after he sprained his ankle earlier today during the game vs the Phillies. Coming up will be Omar Quintanilla which means the Mets have to make a roster move to add him to the 40-man and since it has been announced that pitcher Chris Schwinden will also be joining the team. It could mean that Acosta may be the player that is removed to make the a 40-man roster spot for Quintanilla.
In a tweet by Bisons beat writer Mike Harrington he says Backman has described Quintanilla as the team’s MVP this season.
Quintanilla coming into today was hitting .281/BA 6/HR 27/RBI.
