Putting Kirk on the Opening Day roster would still get him a good 250-300 PA, perhaps more if Bay or Torres get pushed to the curb at some point, so looking at it in that light, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
Still, the non-every day role/inconsistent playing time would bother me, and more importantly, the Mets can save an extra year on Kirk's service time by waiting to promote him later in the year. Why burn a year off his clock by using him as an extra outfielder right from the get go?
Also, keep in mind it's Mike Puma who wrote it, and he even added "it's more likely he goes to AAA Buffalo".

The dream continues!!
Left-handed pitching prospect Robert Carson got a favorable diagnosis of the intercostal strainon his right side, which required an injection.
Carson said the strain is very minor and he is being allowed to resume lightly tossing a baseball today. The strain originally was reported as being on the left side, but actually is on his glove side.
He tweaked the muscle with about seven or eight pitches to go while throwing batting practice. He finished the session and did post-workout running, but it tightened once he returned to the clubhouse.
