New York Mets Notes: Amed Rosario Not Candidate For Promotion

The New York Mets' top prospect is not in line to get a promotion soon despite Asdrubal Cabrera’s injury.

Asdrúbal Cabrera will know tomorrow if he needs to spend some time on the 10-day disabled list after he tore a ligament in his thumb, according to multiple reports. The New York Mets shortstop left Saturday’s game in the seventh inning against the Milwaukee Brewers after he aggravated his left thumb injury which cost him a few games last week, when he just could work only as a pinch-hitter.

Cabrera told the New York Daily News that he has a torn ligament in his left thumb, despite the results of an MRI that he took back on May 6. This time could be different. Ehalt's report said that the Mets will decide on Tuesday whether the shortstop will make a trip to the disabled list and then we will know how much time he will be out of action.

This injury doesn’t mean that Terry Collins' team is thinking about Amed Rosario taking his place, assistant GM John Rico said to Ehalt. That’s very curious considering all the injuries that they suffered.

The Dominican-born shortstop is killing it in Triple-A Las Vegas. He has a .359/.401/.493 slash line so far this year, before Monday’s games. He also has 11 doubles, one triple, two home runs, 18 runs scored, 22 runs batted in and seven stolen bases in 36 games. The club wants to keep him in the minors so that he continues his development before he gets his first call to the big leagues, according to the reports.
