Oliver Perez has a change of heart: will pitch in the minors

Jun 29, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

It’s not an official demotion — remember, Ollie was “injured” — but Andy Martino reports that Perez has given his consent to the Mets, as he must, to begin a rehab assignment in the minors. He starts tomorrow for St. Lucie.

I’d chalk Perez’s change of heart up to reality — in the form of the Mets turning their season around and winning a ton of games the moment he left — smacking him right in the face.

Look for him to rejoin the big league club sometime after the seventh Thursday in July.

    No doubt he will sorely miss the love of his teammates when he goes down there.
