Add Ramon Martinez to the growing list of victims of the injury bug.
Martinez, filling in for the injured Jose Reyes, had to leave Sunday afternoon’s game with back trouble.
Here is an updated list of injuries on the Mets…
Injured and have gone on the DL:
- Brian Schneider – Back and calf strain
- Oliver Perez – Right knee tendinitis
- Carlos Delgado – Right hip impingement
- Alex Cora –Torn ligament in thumb
Injured and have not gone on the DL:
It gets better. Church may be heading to the disabled list with a bum hamstring. That could, and most likely would lead to a promotion of top prospect Fernando Martinez.
Probably a little rushed, but what else are the Mets to do? They need bodies.
Reyes will not start tonight and Martinez is still a question mark, so my money is on Fernando Tatis.
Mr. Ed Ryan over at Mets Fever pointed out that Mark Kiger, an infielder was promoted to Triple-A Buffalo. Could he be moved there to take over for a player heading up to the big leagues? We’ll just have to wait and see. (If anyone, it would be Jonathan Malo.)
So far in 2009, the Mets have had significant injuries at: Catcher, first base, shortstop, center field, right field, pitcher(s).
