Has anyone heard anything else?
In what’s becoming a disturbing situation, Oliver Perez doesn’t believe he’ll be taking the mound tomorrow.
Perez was scratched for yesterday’s outing with a stiff back and was then tentatively slated for tomorrow. But yesterday he said that’s a longshot.
The left-hander did long toss yesterday and said, “I still feel it, but it’s better.” But Perez wasn’t sure how long it would be until he pitched.
Willie Randolph mentioned yesterday that Perez could be pushed back further or perhaps even placed on the disabled list retroactively to June 27. But the Mets can’t have Perez out for too long. He’s been a terrific pitcher for them this season, and they already have Jorge Sosa hurting too.
