Mets sign one, and DFA another

Today the Mets signed Jorge Julio, the recently acquired reliever from Baltimore, to a $2.52 million contract, avoiding arbitration. In other news, the Mets have designated for assignment backup outfielder, Tike Redman in order to make room for John Maine on the 40 man roster.

Redman getting DFA'd surpises me a bit. Going into Spring Training I figured he'd be the fourth or fifth outfielder (depending on what they did with Diaz/Nady). Now it appears that he is behind Endy Chavez on the depth chart, and he will have to pass through waivers to remain with the Mets.
