This is why you don’t sign players who are chronically injured — they will get injured again. You can count on it. I mean, did anyone think Chris Young would get through this season healthy? I’m kind of surprised it happened so fast, but not surprised it happened at all.
Young made just one start after a DL stint for right bicep tendinitis before getting scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday because he couldn’t get lose in the bullpen before the game. He will have an MRI on his right shoulder on Sunday. Who thinks the report will be good? Hands?
Dillon Gee made the emergency start and did reasonably well, considering his normal pre-start routine was disrupted. He lasted 5.1 innings, allowing two runs. I predict we’ve seen the last of Gee coming out of the bullpen — he will be in the rotation for the rest of the season.
The Mets pulled out a nice win against the Dodgers on Saturday, scoring two runs in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie, as well as stopping Andre Ethier’s 30-game hitting streak.
The Mets have now run three in a row and are inching up to .500. Let’s hope they can complete the sweep of the Dodgers on Sunday.
