Re: Cantu Called Up
FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are about to acquire Jeff Conine from the Reds for two A-ball position players.
They probably won't be giving up much of significance. This is the move that's going to make room for Jorge Cantu on the Reds' roster. He'll replace Conine as the team's first baseman versus lefties. Conine will be used primarily as a pinch-hitter in New York. He'll start at first base versus tough lefties, but it won't be a strict platoon with Carlos Delgado.
