Here are this morning’s Mets links:

  • The Mets were defeated last night by a score of 7-6. Johan Santana struggled early, but the Mets mounted a comeback. The comeback wouldn’t be enough however, as the Mets fell one run short. (Box Score)
  • The Mets dealt Omar Quintanilla to the Orioles for cash considerations yesterday. The 30 year-old infielder played 29 games for the Mets this season before being designated for assignment on July 17. (Yahoo Sports)
  • Terry Collins explained to reporters yesterday why he doesn’t expect Dillon Gee back this season. He basically said that after six weeks, it will be like the beginning of spring training again. It does make sense. Usually pitchers take six to eight weeks off in the off-season before they resume their throwing program. It would be very, very difficult for Gee to come back this season and doing so could risk injury. (ESPN New York)
  • It seems possible that Johan Santana may not be 100% after being thrown right into the rotation a year after surgery. However, there will be no innings limit for Santana this season. (Mets Blog)
  • Mike Baxter‘s rehab is moving to Binghamton. (ESPN New York)
  • While everyone is talking about external solutions to the Mets’ bullpen woes, there may be a young arm in the farm system that we just aren’t talking about. Jeurys Familia, who scouts have long said is a future relief pitcher, could be moved to the bullpen and get the call to pitch in the big leagues. (Metszilla)
