— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen

Mets - Activated Benson, Cameron
New York Mets - Activated P Kris Benson and OF Mike Cameron from the 15-day DL; optioned P Royce Ring and P Jae Seo to Norfolk.
Seo gave the Mets two very good and one kinda bleh start, but was unfortunately going to be one of the first players sent back down when some players got healthy. I still think that Seo should have Ishii’s job even when Ishii gets off the DL, but I’m not a SuperGenius like their pitching coach, who fixed Zambrano up so nicely.
While some Mets fans may be disappointed with Benson’s 2005 performance so far, the Mets have gotten a better return on his zero innings than they have on the actual innings that Glavine and Zambrano have pitched this year. Benson should be decent - I’m still amazed how much his contract figures improved as the winter progressed thanks to guys like Eric Milton and Jaret Wrong.
Victor Diaz returns to the bench, but you have to figure that between Floyd and Cameron, there will be enough starter injuries to get him a good number of at-bats.
