Milledge promoted after nady goes on DL

The Mets number one prospect, Lastings Milledge, will get his first taste of the majors tonight against the front running DBacks. Xavier Nady will be placed on the DL due to an appendectomy which will keep him out for about three weeks. Milledge, a five tool outfielder, hit .291 in 182 at bats, while walking 32 times, and slugging 22 extra base hits. Milledge also stole eight bases in fourteen attempts. Milledge was hitting primarily leadoff for the Tides, however he is unlikely to hit leadoff in the majors. He is expected to hit eighth in tonight's lineup against Miguel Batista. Milledge has reportedly been unsuccesful against breaking pitches, but hopefully he has learned how to cope with the "uncle charlies." I am personally surprised that Victor Diaz didn't get the call, however Diaz is only hitting .220 in 118 at bats.
