Today hasn’t been a good day for Mets’ reliever Jon Rauch.
Mets manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York after today’s game that Rauch has dealt with tenderness in the elbow at various times this season, including today’s relief appearance.
“Right now we’re going to have him checked,” Collins said. “He’s got a little tenderness. … He’s been doing fine with it. He said it pops up once in a while. And today, he said, after he got warm and got on the mound, all of a sudden his arm was bothering him. We’re going to have it looked at.”
We should learn more on his status before tomorrow’s series opener against the Nationals.
Rauch, who joined the Mets this offseason on a one-year, $3.5 million contract, has a 4.76 ERA and 13/4 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 innings this season. If he requires a stint on the disabled list, Bobby Parnell will likely serve as the primary bridge to closer Frank Francisco.
