Lastings Milledge


Milledge did not play for the Mets in Thursday's 7-3 win over the San Diego Padres, after he went 0-for-2 with two walks and two strikeouts in Wednesday's 4-3 win against them. The 21-year-old right fielder has gone 3-for-22 (.136) with two RBIs in eight games, since being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Aug. 1.


Milledge was recalled by the Mets from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday and went 0-for-1 with three walks, while starting in right field in New York's 6-5 loss to the Florida Marlins. The 21-year-old prospect was replaced by Endy Chavez for defensive purposes in the ninth inning after Milledge cut his left hand sliding into second base trying to break up a double play.


Milledge was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday when the Mets activated left fielder Cliff Floyd from the 15-day disabled list.


Milledge went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and three RBIs for the Mets in a 9-7 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday. He has hit two homers in the last four games.


Milledge went 3-for-4 with his first career home run and three RBIs for the Mets in a 7-6 loss in 12 innings to the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. He is playing right field in the absence of Xavier Nady, who is on the disabled list after undergoing an appendectomy.


Milledge was called up by the New York Mets on Tuesday after starting right fielder Xavier Nady was placed on the disabled list following an appendectomy earlier in the day. Milledge was penciled in the starting lineup, playing right field and batting eighth. Because of travel difficulties, he still hadn't gotten to Shea Stadium two hours before the scheduled first pitch.


Highly touted prospect Milledge hit his first homer of the spring for the Mets on Saturday against the Nationals.
