Tim Byrdak is due to get an MRI to help determine the extent of the damage to his left shoulder today. There may be word as well whether Kirk Nieuwenhuis requires surgery for the plantar fascia tear in his right foot, which he suffered with Buffalo.
Johan Santana tossed three scoreless innings in a rehab start for Brooklyn on Sunday night. Terry Collins expects the 33-year-old left-hander will be activated from the DL on Saturday to face the Braves. Santana threw 38 pitches (29 strikes) while surrendering one hit and one walk and striking out three. He upped his pitch count to 90 by throwing in the bullpen at Coney Island afterward.

Manager Terry Collins said before Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Marlins that...

Jose Reyes and his 24 game hitting streak return to Flushing. The former (it still kills me to write this) Mets SS has been on a rampage in raising his average to .288 and his OBP to .351. Hopefully this time the Flushing Faithful will cheer Jose and Jeer the Marlins.
Jason Bay will sit start tonight against the Marlin lefty Wade LeBlanc. Why it should matter whether the pitcher is right handed
