When the Mets return to action following the All-Star break, Johan Santana, R.A. Dickey, and Jon Niese are the scheduled starters in Atlanta.
R.A. Dickey and David Wright were chosen to participate in the All-Star game, although neither will be starting (What a joke).
Dickey continues to garner national attention. He was named N.L. Player of the Month for June, he is set to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday, and he was ABC World News' Person of the Week.
Prospects Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler will participate in the Futures Game today in Kansas City. Game time is 5p.m. on ESPN 2.
Justin Hampson was designated for assignment and Jordany Valdespin took his place on the roster. Valdespin hit home runs in back-to-back games against the Cubs.
Pedro Beato was called up after the team optioned Jeremy Hefner to Buffalo. Beato pitched a scoreless inning of relief on Thursday.
The Mets reclaimed Chris Schwinden. I don't know why.
If you're into Twitter, Matt Harvey has joined. Tweet him at @MattHarvey43.
On the injury front...
Frank Francisco is scheduled to pitch in a rehab game on Wednesday. Francisco strained his left oblique during the Subway Series.
Andres Torres has been day-to-day with back spasms.
The Mets are planning on Jason Bay making a rehab start in St. Lucie today. They expect him to play two or three games there before moving on to Triple-A Buffalo.
Mike Baxter told ESPN New York that he has full range of motion in his injured shoulder and has been hitting off a tee. He has been rehabbing in St. Lucie.
