Williams out until May

Mark Hale at the NY Post writes about Dave Williams and when we can expect his return:

Dave Williams could require three months of rehab before he is able to pitch for the Mets, his agent said yesterday.

The left-hander had surgery last Wednesday for a herniated disc in his neck, and yesterday his agent, David Pepe, said the understanding based on doctors who have seen Williams so far is that it will be three months until he can "be ready to pitch in games." That takes Williams out till around May.

"He's really very disappointed," said Pepe, "but the pain that he was experiencing when he was throwing made him unable to throw."

So the injuries keep coming even during the off season.
