Sorry, BlackBerry not working well this morning and couldn’t post from the clubhouse. But, let’s catch up because a lot is happening:
-John Maine goes on the DL and will be replaced by Ed Kunz. The thinking is to buy Maine some more time to rest his shoulder and the team could use bullpen help. Maine to pitch Aug. 13.
-Billy Wagner has strained left forearm and will have MRI tomorrow or Tuesday.
-The Mets will need a starter for Friday to replace Maine. It could come from Niese, Stokes, Figueroa, Vargas and Lugo.
-Ryan Church is still day-to-day.
-They want to rest Aaron Heilman today. Kunz could close. Jerry Manuel said Duaner Sanchez’s velocity is not there.
-Ramon Castro’s right ankle is sore. He said he could pinch-hit. Don’t bet on it.
