Gonzalez Germen taken off rehab duties

Mets reliever Gonzalez Germen was taken off rehabilitation duties, GM Sandy Alderson said Tuesday.

The Mets placed Germen on the disabled list with a virus on May 13. However, according to Alderson, Germen is now dealing with an abscess, while still experiencing flu-like symptoms.

He has a 3.57 ERA in 13 relief appearances for the Mets this season, during which he has struck out 17 batters in 17 innings pitched.

Flu-like symptons? Please! They just wanted to fiddle with the roster. Germen has shown a live arm but can be inconsistent.
