Mets look to Sosa with Williams out

Michael J. Schmidt at the New York Times writes about the Mets and how they will be leaning on Jorge Sosa now that Dave Williams will be out until June:

Dave Williams, who was viewed as a potential replacement for Darren Oliver as the Mets’ long reliever and an emergency starter, had an operation this week to repair a herniated disk in his neck and could be out until June, General Manager Omar Minaya said yesterday before leaving on a trip to Ghana to promote baseball.

Minaya said that Jorge Sosa, who was recently signed by the Mets, could fill Oliver’s role. The Mets could also turn to the left-handed reliever Scott Schoeneweis, whom they recently signed. Schoeneweis, who can pitch long relief, started 19 games in 2004.
