So far this season in 16 games with the AA Binghamton Mets, Malo’s batting line is .290 BA/.389 OBP/.403 SLG in 73 plate appearances, and in 19 games with the AAA Buffalo Bisons it is .187 BA/.247 OBP/.253 SLG in 82 plate appearances, so if he has indeed been called up it must be for his glove.
UPDATE: Mr. Singer has added two lines to his post – “Malo may not be there tonight…More to follow.” and “I have a friend with the Bisons, he may have jumped the gun.” So this is how rumors get started!
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: The original post at NY Sports Dog is now a ‘mea culpa.’ “Sorry guys, I had it wrong.” At least Mr. Singer is not afraid to admit a mistake. NY Sports Dog is a fine read, this episode should not color your opinion of it. Rather, I should get a hobby. It is after all a Saturday afternoon.
