Lots and Lots of Injuries

Over the weekend there were a lot of injuries that happened to the Mets but since I had no internet, I wasn’t able to blog about them. Here is a list of injuries:

Could be back this week.
Brian Schnieder – He has been working in extended spring training. Hopes to be back this week.
Jose Reyes – Did not play in Boston. Jerry Manual said that Reyes would not play today (Monday) at Citi Field against the Nats.
Francisco Rodrieguez – After being in the hospital Saturday, Franky was able to jog out to the bullpen yesterday and he did alittle bit of warming up.
Ryan Church – He could be sent to the disabled list according to Manual. Jerry said that Church will be examined on his sore right hamstring today.
Ramon Martinez – He was taken out in the 8th inning yesterday due to back pain. Manual also said that Fernando Tatis could be the starter at shortstop today.
With all of these injuries the Mets only have 2 guys on the bench. The backup catcher and Reed or Pagan.

Reyes, Peavy and Ollie

The Mets today announced that Jose Reyes is day to day after getting tendentious in is calf yesterday. As Noble Thoughts said, you never know what the Mets are hiding and Reyes could actually be really badly hurt.

Also today the Padres made a deal with the Chicago White Sox  for Jake Peavy but Peavy waived his no trade claus saying that he wants to stay in the National league on a team playing in Central United States.
In other news Oliver Perez pitched a game in extended spring training today. He went 5 innings but I have not been able to find out his line. Brian Schnieder caught Perez today.
