Injured Players

Here is an interesting take on injuries for the 2009 Mets. The following players from this season's roster did not play during the NHL's entire off season (defined here as the time between the end of the Stanley Cup Finals, June 12 and the first exhibition game, September 14):

  • Carlos Delgado - last game was May 10

  • Jose Reyes - last game was May 20

  • Ramon Martinez - last game was June 2

  • J.J. Putz - last game was June 4

John Maine missed being on this list by one day - he returned on September 13 after pitching June 6.

OK, I actually thought there were more players on this list. But when you consider 2 offensive keys and 2 of your top 5 pitchers (top 3 starters, setup man, closer) on this list, that spells doom.
