SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Infielder Luis Castillo is expected to join the New York Mets when they open a three-game series at the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday and left-hander Oliver Perez should be close behind.
In the second year of a $36 million, three-year contract, Perez (6.28 ERA) lost his spot in the rotation this season and was banished to a mop-up role in the bullpen.
The team had hoped he would accept a minor league assignment, but he had the right to refuse.
