This morning at Yankee Stadium, Terry Collins spoke with reporters, and said he expects Angel Pagan to return sometime this week. Yesterday, Collins said Pagan would head to Buffalo to finish his rehabilitation assignment, but said today he has to go to Puerto Rico to attend to a family situation instead.
When Mets Blob needs to rehab it usually involves Dr. Drew not a trip to Puerto Rico. Often the rehab is set off by a trip to Puerto Rico. Mets Blob hopes Angel and his family are well.
In addition, Collins basically said the following:
• Ronny Paulino will get more playing time, as Josh Thole needs to work on some things.
Basically...Josh needs to work on learning how catch a baseball and learning how to hit a baseball. Thole right now looks overmatched by playing baseball in the show.
• Ike Davis still hasn’t started running, so it’s unclear whether he will be able to return from the disabled list when he is eligible on May 26. Nothing funny about this just sad as we enter a another game with Bay batting in the 4 hole. Ike! Please come back! IKE!

“I actually know what I need to do – It’s just a matter of doing
it…I just have to get back to what I did my whole life, what
got me here…There are two or three things that have to
happen [with my swing], but regardless of what I do or how I
stand, somewhere between changing it all and struggling
last year, I forgot about that.”
Really Jay Bay? That's great. Take your time and your 65 mil.
and shove it up the 5 things I can tell are wrong with you and
your swing from my living room. A hard worker...would
have worked this out by now.
