Gary Cohen just gave an update on Brian Schneider during the WB11 Mets broadcast.
He said, “Brian Schneider isn’t even close to a return and in fact he hasn’t even done any running”.
Schneider, was placed on the disabled list with a strained back on April 17, and was eligible to return on May 2nd. However, he is now experiencing problems with his calf muscle. It’s not know when he is expected to be ready for game action.
Meanwhile, Ramon Castro left Saturday’s 10-1 win over the Pirates after six innings with tightness in his right quadriceps muscle. Castro described the trouble as cramps. He says he could play if they really need him. Here we go again…
No worries though, because Omir Santos continues to excel during his extended playing time. He has shown a remarkable ability to come through in the clutch and has really impressed defensively as well.
Santos came into today’s game with a .289 batting average.
