Luis Castillo will not be activated today. He spoke with Jerry Manuel just before we met with the manager. Manuel said Castillo said he needed a few extra days to get up to speed. He didn’t want to join a team that was playing so well if he didn’t think he was ready. Manuel respected the decision.
Ryan Church will start again tonight. But there was other news.
Manuel said he and Dan Werthen would monitor John Maine closely tonight. They will consider skipping him at some point if they have options (after Sept. 1) and they think he needs it.
Manuel also confirmed that he and Werthen had discussions about skipping Pelfrey’s start in Florida but hadn’t decided anything yet. … I’m telling you folks, this inning count will be an issue from here on out. Sabermetrics is here to stay.
Anyway, here is the lineup:
7 Reyes, SS
4 A. Reyes, 2B
5 Wright, 3B
21 Delgado, 1B
15 Beltran, CF
28 Murphy, LF
19 Church, RF
23 Schneider, C
33 Maine, RHP
