'Spin out for Hef; Wright sits

Jordany Valdespin is out as the Mets will play with a three-man bench (while using the DH) in the American League ballpark this weekend. The move to activate Jeremy Hefner is not yet official, but Valdespin is no longer listed on the active roster in the clubhouse.

David Wright, as predicted, also is off Saturday.
