News: Oliver Perez is on the DL

Oliver Perez has been placed on 15-day disabled list with patella tendinitis of right knee.

this is great news, see my previous post… the thing is, why did this take two weeks to come up with this conclusion… oh well… also, most every fan i know, including myself, have been asking for an ollie, Gary Mathews Jr., Luis Castillo free roster for weeks now… well, now we’ve got it… i hope it works out as we hoped…

Perez had an MRI yesterday, according to SNY producer Matt Dunn.

The Mets have said Perez is expected to leave for Florida today to begin his rehab.

Jon Niese has been activated from the disabled list, and will start this afternoon against the Marlins.
