According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies put in a claim on David Wright. Don't worry, Mets fans. Wright's not going anywhere. Former general manager Omar Minaya told WFAN's Boomer & Carton that all players are placed on waivers.
Jose Reyes is scheduled to make his first rehab start today in Binghamton. He will play three straight games, before getting Sunday off, and then returning to the Mets on Monday.
Former major leaguer and current Phillies broadcaster Gary Matthews Sr. called the Mets "crybabies" during yesterday's game. It all happened after Mike Pelfrey told Placido Polanco to not lean into a pitch after he thought the batter was intentionally trying to get hit. Chalk it up to just another idiotic thing done by someone associated with the Phillies.
