According to reports, Billy Wagner has a tight shoulder and was considering getting an MRI. He passed on the MRI, but he will get a few days to rest at this point.
Wagner is a risky play in Fantasy Week 17 (July 21-27) at this point, especially since he might not pitch in the crucial Phillies series. If he can't pitch in that way, there might not be a reason to rush him back over the weekend vs. St. Louis either. Seek alternatives to Wagner at the closer position this week.
The New York Journal News reports that an MRI exam on Billy Wagner's sore left shoulder Tuesday revealed merely a muscle spasm with zero structural damage.
Wagner is now considered day-to-day. He struck out the side in an appearance Sunday that came after he had trouble warming up and could be available out of the Mets' bullpen Tuesday.
