Muno to join AFL contingent
By Adam Rubin
Mets farmhand Danny Muno is due to join the Mets' Arizona Fall League contingent today. Muno, an infielder, had been on the original list of participants, but was pulled from the initial group because of what a team official labeled "personal reasons."
Danny Muno is due to join the Mets' Arizona Fall League contingent today.
He will be on the "taxi squad" for now, permitting him to play twice a week.
Muno, 23, hit .280 with six homers, 39 RBIs and 19 steals in 289 at-bats with Class A St. Lucie this season. He served a 50-game suspension during the season after MLB announced he tested positive for a metabolite of Drostanolone, a performance-enhancing drug.
Surprise, which includes Mets prospects, is 6-4 so far during the AFL season.
Among Mets farmhands: Dustin Lawley is hitting .296 with a homer and seven RBIs in 27 at-bats. Darrell Ceciliani is hitting .280 with a homer and six RBIs in 25 ABs. And Cesar Puello is hitting .273 with four RBIs in 33 at-bats.
Pitching-wise, Greg Peavey and Ryan Fraser have 1.80 ERAs, Adam Kolarek 2.45 and Chase Huchingson 6.75.
