• According to Bart Hubbuch's Twitter, the NY Post sportswriter is reporting that J.J. Putz's latest rehab outing has been cancelled.
  • According to John Minko of WFAN during his latest 20/20 sports update, the Mets have shut down Putz for the season.   (He stated this during his 4:40pm update, but did NOT mention it during the 5:00pm update.   Therefore a question mark has been added to the title of the post).
