Orlando Hernandez and Jose Valentin returned to New York this afternoon to be examined by team physicians.
Hernandez, scheduled to start tomorrow against Florida, complained of tightness in the shoulder this morning.

“He felt something in his shoulder,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ general manager Omar Minaya said. “We have to get it checked out.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
Valentin felt discomfort in his right knee and left Saturday nightÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s game in the fourth inning. He seemed hopeful the injury isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t serious. Should Valentin go on the DL, Anderson Hernandez is most likely to be called up.
