Former setup man JJ Putz will join Johan Santana on the disabled list for the rest of the season as new test results on his arm revealed further damage to his arm. He will not require surgery, but the Mets decided to shut him down as a preventative measure. He might as well sit the rest of the season out as there’s nothing to play for anyway.
This is on top of news that Oliver Perez will probably miss his next start due to more discomfort in his knee. Of course, no one would be surprised if he also is shut down for the rest of the season as well. All of these injuries are just laughable now. It’s unconcievable that so many injuries could befall one team, but of course, it has to be the Mets.
Maybe the Mets should change one of their slogans from “You gotta believe” to “Unbelievable!”
