Per Metsblog.com, John Franco was on WFAN this morning and said that Billy Wagner is already throwing 90MPH in his rehab. Franco has been working with Mets pitchers for the past week.
While this is no way a sign that Wagner is anywhere close to ready, it does give one hope that he might be an impact come late August-early September. A healthy Wagner pitching the 8th in September would be a big help to the Mets if they’re in a tight race down the stretch. And we can only imagine if Putz and Wagner come back fully healthy and pitching anywhere near their abilities.
