Fernando Martinez tore his meniscus and had the subsequent surgery on Tuesday. He is out six to eight weeks.
I’ve had this surgery before and it’s no fun, but for the knee, a meniscus is a good thing. The Mets are very lucky that is wasn’t the ACL, MCL or any other CL. You may remember Ramon Castro had the same surgery a few years ago.
For the rest of the Mets walking wounded, Omar Minaya updated reporters earlier today.
- John Maine should be pitching again within a week or so.
- Jose Reyes is swinging, but not running yet.
- Carlos Delgado’s is swinging and taking grounders.
- Carlos Beltran had another MRI and he still has a bone bruise.
