Just when you thought the whole Mets misdiagnosing injury thing was in the rear-view mirror, here’s this.
Pagan, who made his return to the Mets’ lineup tonight, was initially placed on the disabled list with a strained left oblique on April 22. He was shut down from a rehab assignment earlier this month with something the Mets called “point tenderness.” I’m not sure what that means exactly, but I can only assume that Pagan doesn’t enjoy people pointing and laughing at him.
Anyway, Pagan just laced a single in his first at-bat tonight against the Phillies, so the actual diagnosis probably doesn’t matter all that much as long as he’s healthy and back on the field.
