The Gotay Situation

Ted Berg at SNY, writes about Ruben Gotay and what the plans for him are:

With Damion Easley in the midst of a 2-for-20 slump that has seen his numbers come plummeting down toward Earth, Gotay -- Easley's fellow fill-in for Valentin -- has picked up the slack. The 24-year-old middle infielder is now hitting .316 with a .350 OBP and a .526 SLG and is making a strong case for a roster spot even after Alou's return from the DL. Gotay's career Minor League numbers are nowhere near the ones he's put up in the Show this season, so there's no real way the speedster can keep this up. But Mets fans should be thankful that his hot streak coincided with the rough stretch for the team's offense, as Gotay's performance on Saturday spearheaded the Mets' victory.
