Livan Hernandez has won the battle, but not the war

Although all signals point toward Livan Hernandez winning the fifth starter job in the Mets rotation, it certainly won’t last. Most teams have several fifth starters throughout the year, and this case should be no exception considering the amount of candidates that competed for the job this Spring in Port St Lucie.

I won’t be able to trust Hernandez’s shaky fastball, as it fails to have enough velocity to keep up with major league talent. I’m expecting the Mets to put Hernandez on a short leash, especially with several other potential options waiting at AAA Buffalo.
