K-Rod collapses...
The injury list continues to mount...
Already on the DL; Delgado, Cora and Perez...

Day-to-day; Beltran, Reyes, Church and Putz...

Tonight, Putz returned from his stiff neck and closed the game instead of Francisco Rodriguez.

My initial reaction was that Putz was being showcased for a trade, would there be a better way to increase his value, then a one run, save in Fenway. They could then blame all his struggles on setting-up and possibly find a nice bat from a team in need of a closer. After all, most of us are very comfortable with Bobby Parnell setting up and Omar has shown a propensity to trade mid-season from the major league roster (Nady) instead of the farm.

But Putz wasn't on display tonight, K-Rod was unavailable due to back spasms. In fact, they became so bad, at one point he collapsed and EMT's were brought in...

The Mets gave K-Rod muscle relaxers, but he collapsed shortly after trying to leave the clubhouse on his power. Rodriguez started weeping from the pain after being helped into a golf cart, and a stretcher and EMTs were called to the scene. source NY Post
