Minor League Tracker: Carp On The DL

Mike Carp is list as #6 on the Mets top ten prospect list and is a leading candidate to replace Carlos Delgado when he decides to move on (hopefully not for few years). Carp impressed the organization this year during spring training a stayed with the parent club well after most minor leaguers had recieved their assignments. In 24 spring training games Carp batted .233, OBP .313, SLG .372, 7 RBIs, 1 HR and 3 doubles. Rob K. of Flushing University reports that Carp is on the DL with a broken finger:

One of the Mets top prospects, Mike Carp will be sidelined anywhere between four and five weeks with a broken bone in his ring finger. The injury occurred when Carp was sliding into second base on a routine double play. New Britain shortstop Trevor Plouff hit Carp’s hand as he was attempting to complete the double play on his throw to first base.

"It still hurts, but otherwise I feel good," Carp said before Friday's game against Portland. "It was kind of a fluke injury."
