NEW YORK (AP) – New York Mets pitcher John Maine has tendinitis in his right rotator cuff and there’s no timetable for his return.
The Mets made the announcement Monday after the righty had an MRI exam.
Maine left his previous start Thursday against Washington after throwing only five pitches. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday.
Maine will begin a rehabilitation program and start throwing when his shoulder feels OK.
The Mets also say they have reinstated first baseman Daniel Murphy from the 15-day DL and optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo. Murphy had been on the disabled list since April 5 because of a sprained right knee.
