– St. Lucie 3B Aderlin Rodriguez has been out of the lineup for the last week with an irritation in his right eye that was giving him “a little trouble with vision.” He is expected back tonight. The 20-year old has hit 26 doubles and 22 homers this year between Savannah and St. Lucie and is easily the top power-hitting prospect in the system. He had just started to turn it on in August as well in St. Lucie, ripping four homerun in his seven games in the month as part of a .321/.387/.786 line in seven games.
– RHP Tyler Pill was removed from his August 9th start in St. Lucie after just two innings with what was I was originally told was forearm tightness. However, when Pill, last year’s fourth round pick, was placed on the disabled list this week, the diagnosis was altered to triceps tendonitis. The Mets do not believe it is serious, but his return date is unclear at this point.
