Cedeno should be back Friday..

Back-up middle infielder Ronny Cedeno should return from an oblique injury on Friday.  Cedeno is a serviceable temporary starter and a solid defensive bench player.  Turner is a solid bat off the bench but he just doesn't have the range to play short on a daily basis.

 Of course, this means that Valdespin will be the odd man out and after his late inning homerun many will be complaining that it should be Valdespin at short instead of Cedeno.  I do believe this is the right move  for now but I see the potential the Mets always talk about in Valdespin...
