Injured Mets closer Billy Wagner suffered another setback in his comeback bid from elbow inflammation. GM Omar Minaya told reporters before tonight’s game that Wagner cut his workout short to only 12 pitches after feeling discomfort in his pitching elbow.
At this late stage of the season the Mets need to start thinking that they may not have Wagner back at all. I’m certainly not looking forward to seeing Luis Ayala closing games at the end of September and beyond. But that’s the reality starting to sink into my mind.
