Here’s the starting lineup for the Mets that will (hopefully) support Tom Glavine in his quest for his 300th win:
Note the absence of Carlos Beltran. Beltran was put on the DL today due to the injury he suffered during batting practice last Wednesday. The move made room to add Castillo to the roster after having acquired him for two minor leaguers yesterday. It was a retroactive DL placement which mean Beltran will be eligible to return to the lineup late next week at which point the team will have to make another move.
Pedro Martinez will make his first rehab start tomorrow throwing 45 pitches for class St. Lucie. With the 30-day limit on rehab assignments for pitchers this would set up a possible September 1 return for Martinez.
