Mets rotation news

The Mets have flopped R.A. Dickey and Jon Niese in the rotation. Niese will go Thursday against the Padres and Dickey on Friday against the Orioles. The move gives knuckleballer Dickey extra rest.

Right-hander John Maine, who has been on the disabled list since May 22 with shoulder tendinitis, is coming along faster than expected and could be back in the Mets' rotation as soon as next week. He threw a simulated game yesterday and will make a minor league rehab appearance this weekend.

Manager Jerry Manuel told reporters that when Maine returns, Hisanori Takahashi is headed back to the bullpen.

"We like Takahashi as a pitcher," Manuel said "[But] we think we have lost something in the bullpen when he's a starter, so that's a scenario that could work if and when John Maine is healthy and we feel he's ready to be part of the rotation."

The Kids Are Alright

How about the rookies of the National League East?

• There was some guy in Washington who did something.

• The Mets' Ike Davis hit a walk-off against the Padres.

• Florida's Mike Stanton was 3 for 5 with two runs in his debut.

Jason Heyward started the day by moving into second in All-Star fan voting for National League outfielders, then went 2 for 5 and picked up his 40th RBI of the season in a Braves victory.

MLB clears Mets in Perez move


As the New York Daily News reports, Major League Baseball has finished its investigation of a suspicious roster move by the Mets, determining that no funny business was involved.

The Mets placed left-hander Oliver Perez on the disabled list Saturday with knee tendinitis, a move that happened to come after Perez had refused an assignment to the minors and at a time when the team needed a roster spot to activate Jon Niese from the DL. MLB frowns upon using the DL to stash players for roster and performance reasons, and asked to see Perez's medical records.
