Just walked into the Mets clubhouse. Oliver Perez’s back is still sore and doesn’t think he will pitch tomorrow.
Look for the Mets to DL Perez and bring up Jason Vargas to start vs. Rockies.
“I don’t want to take the chance of pushing it and maybe miss a month,” Perez said about forcing himself..
Another no-brainer. They will retroactive the move to his start last week vs. Cards and bring him back after break.
Mets are covered and rotation rest of week looks like this: Vargas, Hernandez, Maine, Pelfrey, Glavine and Vargas.
That’s if they choose not use somebody on short rest. That’s not a great option..
