Akeel Morris promoted from Single A St.Lucie

\

Here is something I didn’t expect to happen. Akeel Morris, a key reliever for the Single A St.Lucie Mets has been promoted to the big club. Morris was having a good year in Single A sporting a 1.69 ERA, the only problem is, that was to hitters three levels below MLB hitters, and to be frank, demoting someone and shaking up the roster after a huge win might not be the best move, unless a trade involving a Dillon Gee type player is imminent.

Then again, it could be Robles, as his ERA, is way too high (6.08), and he blew a save yesterday. And, of course, the wild possibility of a trade is in play. If I had to place my money on one of the above, it would be Gee getting sent down, especially after today’s 8-run performance.
