Player Update: Valentin, Padilla, Sanchez, Hernandez, Martinez & Williams

Ed Ryan at Mets Fever (Shea Nation Network), writes about various Mets players on the Disabled List and how they're progressing:

Aside from Jose Valentin, along with a few bumps and bruises to the regular position players are relatively healthy. It's the pitching staff that has been hurt by injuries. There are five pitchers that could be on the roster that are currently on the disable list. In regards to Juan Padilla and Duaner Sanchez time frames aren't being discussed except to say hopefully in August. But Williams, Hernandez and even Pedro are progressing on schedule. John Delcos at Lo Hud Journal reports on the pitchers progress.

GM Omar Minaya said Pedro Martinez and Dave Williams are continuing their long-toss routines in Port St. Lucie. The timetables haven’t changed with Williams maybe in late June and Martinez in August.

-Minaya also said Orlando Hernandez could miss up to two more starts. “We aren’t going to rush him,’’ he said.
