The Mets announced today that Mike Pelfrey left the team yesterday for his home in Kansas for the birth of his first child. Between this news and the season ending injury to Jon Niese, this really puts the Mets in a bind for starting pitching.

Pelfrey was scheduled to start against the Padres in San Diego on Saturday. With Nelson Figueroa pitching 4.1 innings yesterday, Tim Redding will probably get a start against the Padres.

Redding’s last start was July 2 against the Pirates when he gave up 5 runs in 2.1 innings, then lost his spot in the rotation.
