MLB Injury Report: Maine and Bonderman

Jun 12, 2009

The Mets were forced to put John Maine on the 15-day DL because of shoulder soreness.  The Mets just can’t catch a break with the injuries.  Maine was 5-4 with a 4.52 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 42 Ks.  Fernando Nieve, who was called up when J.J. Putz went on the DL for the Mets, will get the start for Maine tomorrow.  In four starts for Triple-A Buffalo Nieve was 3-0 with a 3.70 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 23 Ks in 24-1/3 Innings.

Jeremy Bonderman made just one poor start before his shoulder forced him back on the DL.  He gave up 6 Runs in 4 Innings.  Dontrelle Willis, who has looked shaky at best since his return, will hold down Bonderman’s spot in the rotation.  However, with a 6.60 ERA and 1.70 WHIP, his spot is exceedingly tenuous.
