NY Mets unsure of moves as rosters set to shrink on Monday

NEW YORK — The Mets enter the month of May with the best record in the National League, lead Major League Baseball in hits and have the fourth-lowest earned run average of any team in the league.

Even with that strong start, a couple of the lockers in the clubhouse are going to get cleared out on Monday afternoon.

That’s because of MLB’s agreement with the players union after the 99-day lockout earlier this year. Citing health concerns from a shortened spring training, rosters were expanded to 28 players for the start of the season and would shrink back to a regular total of 26 on May 2.

“It’s certainly a topic that has been kicked around a lot, knowing there’s not an easy decision there,” said manager Buck Showalter on Sunday. “Nothing’s black and white.”
