Ahern's second chance

Adam Rubin at The NY Daily News writes about Anderson Hernandez and the second chance he has been given:

Infielder Anderson Hernandez joined the Mets from Triple-A Norfolk yesterday, and Willie Randolph indicated more depth is on the way. The manager expected relievers Heath Bell and Royce Ring would rejoin the Mets shortly, while catcher Kelly Stinnett and outfielder Lastings Milledge also should be with the club no later than Tuesday. Major league rosters expand today, while the Tides' season ends Monday.

Hernandez, who started 11 games for the Mets at second base in April before landing on the DL with a bulging disk, hit .249 with Norfolk. His final two games with the Tides were at second base, but Hernandez played 39 straight games at shortstop before that. "They surprised me," Hernandez said about the promotion. "I didn't think I was going to make it this year."
