John Maine Will Be Shutdown
According to Andy Martino of the Daily News via Twitter, John Maine received the second opinion on his shoulder today and it was confirmed there is no structural damage.
He does have fairly serious shoulder tendinitis and he’s gonna have to shut it down for awhile.
The Mets also released a statement saying that Maine, Omar Minaya, Jerry Manuel and Dan Warthen will sit down soon to ‘develop a plan going forward.’
Last week several sources reported that the Mets could release Maine and designate him for assignment, and a few days ago Jerry Manuel jokingly told reporters that his plan was to pitch Maine on off days.
It’s no secret that Hisanori Takahashi and R.A. Dickey, who pitches tonight, have excelled in his place… I just don’t see anyone in a real rush to bring Maine back, so who knows what kind of stuff these guys are hatching…
