Tim Redding Bullpen Session Scratched

Mets pitcher, Tim Redding has been on the shelf with what’s being called a minor sore shoulder.

Redding was considered a solid contender for the number five spot in the rotation, but has yet to appear in any game action.

He had been scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Thursday, but pitching coach Dan Warthen scrapped that plan for an unexplained reason.

The team is reporting that Redding will continue to long toss before stepping on a mound again in a few days.

He is still listed as the March 8th starter.
