NEW YORK -- The Mets tidied up their roster Sunday in advance of Opening Day, making their final spring transactions.
The team selected infielder Omar Quintanilla's contract, thereby adding him to the active roster as their backup middle infielder. The Mets also re-assigned infielders Anthony Seratelli and Eric Campbell, catcher Taylor Teagarden, and pitchers Daisuke Matsuzaka and Kyle Farnsworth to Triple-A Las Vegas.
To make room on the 40-man roster for Quintanilla, the Mets placed pitcher Matt Harvey on the 60-day disabled list. Harvey will spend the entire season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. The Mets also placed left-handed Jon Niese on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 21, with plans to activate him for his first start April 6.
The resulting Opening Day roster is as follows:
Opening Day is Monday against the Nationals at 1:10 p.m. ET at Citi Field.
