The Mets continued trimming their major league camp size Friday with eight matter-of-fact moves.

Dillon Gee, who should headline the Triple-A rotation with Jenrry Mejia and Josh Stinson, was optioned. That makes what was abundantly obvious even more so: The major league starters should be Mike Pelfrey, Jon Niese, R.A. Dickey, Chris Young and Chris Capuano.

Among the players receiving word: Taylor Tankersley, whose son Huck was born at 12:20 a.m. Tim Byrdak has had the inside track for the left-handed relief specialist all along.

“Getting sent out is not even on my radar,” a beaming Tankersley said.

The official list also includes: outfielder Jason Pridie, right-hander Ryota Igarashi, infielder Russ Adams, right-hander Boof Bonser and catchers Dusty Ryan and Raul Chavez.
