Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports that right-hander Shaun Marcum has been cleared to make his Mets debut on Saturday against the Phillies.

Marcum was placed on the disabled list at the end of spring training because of biceps tendinitis and then developed neck inflammation while rehabbing his arm. But he has looked sharp in recent outings at extended spring training and is feeling strong.

Marcum signed a one-year, $4 million free agent contract with the Mets this past winter after posting a 3.70 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 109/41 K/BB ratio in 124 innings (21 starts) last season for the Brewers.

The Mets’ rotation will soon be Matt Harvey, Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, Zack Wheeler and Marcum.

That’s a very talented group of starting pitchers. And only Marcum is over 30 years old.

    Becoming consistant should be the goal of the Mets pitching staff.
    So far they are not bad.

    Wheeler won’t be up soon. He’s struggling in Las Vegas. Maybe in August or so, but not “soon.”

    I used to love it when this guy pitched for the bluejays, if you look closely enough you will see a long line of failed bluejays players who proudly said were “can’t miss”. So much for all those sandwich picks eh? With that said Hey how about those 8-13 bluejays? Gotta love it!!
