The MRI and exam revealed that Maine has tendinitis in his rotator cuff. "He will begin a rehabilitation program and will resume throwing as tolerated," the press release said.

Meanwhile, the Mets removed Daniel Murphy from his rehabilitation assignment, reinstated him from his 15-day DL stint and assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo. Murphy was on the 15-day DL since April 5 with a Grade 1 sprain of his right knee MCL. Murphy was 8-for-11 (one home run and six RBI) in three games with Class A St. Lucie.
