Mets Promote Milledge, Place Nady On The DL

From MLB.com :

The New York Mets today placed outfielder Xavier Nady on the 15-Day Disabled List and recalled outfielder Lastings Milledge (above) from Norfolk (AAA) of the International League.

Nady underwent an appendectomy this morning at approximately 5:30 a.m. at New York Presbyterian Hospital. Xavier should be able to resume baseball activities in 7-10 days.

Clearly, the Mets have no interest in winning the International League this year.

In all seriousness, with Cliff Floyd suddenly coming alive over the past two weeks and Jose Valentin saving what’s left of his career, who’d have imagined Xavier Nady — drilled in the ribs last night  — would suddenly make way for Milledge?
