UPDATE 5:02pm: It was reported by CNNSI that “MLB received the medical reports from the Mets, reviewed them and said Tuesday the move was fine.”
UPDATE 12:15pm: In an article written by Adam Rubin he says the following,
“An MLB source noted it would be difficult to question a reputable medical provider’s diagnosis, especially since a veteran pitcher almost assuredly has enough wear and tear to turn up something on an MRI. Still, the source added, if the Mets try to keep Perez on the DL for more than the minimum 15-day stay, an issue may arise — since healthy players are not supposed to be hidden on the DL.”
Original Post 10:38am: Matt Cerrone is reporting that according to 2 sources that work for MLB the inquiry into Oliver Perez’s DL stint this past Saturday is not a formality as was initially reported by a NY Daily News reporter but instead “a serious investigation“. Cerrone goes on to say “and there is a chance the transaction gets reversed“.
