Humber got called up to AA Bing and will pitch Monday night.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Not a very good first AA outing:

4 IP, 3 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 K

Now it looks like he's injured. The Mets F.O. hasn't said what the diagnosis is yet but they've suggested that it's pretty serious. :,-(

Philip Humber, one of the Mets' top pitching prospects, may need surgery for his ailing right elbow, Newsday has learned. Humber is expected to visit noted sports surgeon James Andrews after receiving an initial diagnosis from Mets doctors.

Humber has been told there are three possible ways to treat his elbow pain, and Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery is one of them. Humber and doctors might also decide on a less invasive surgery or rest. If Tommy John surgery is ultimately prescribed, Humber would miss at least one year.

Humber, the Mets' No. 1 draft choice in 2004 and No. 3 pick overall, felt pain in his elbow Monday during his first start since being promoted to Double-A Binghamton. He had started 14 games at Class A St. Lucie this season, posting a 2-6 record with a 4.99 ERA and 65 strikeouts in 70 1/3 innnings.
