Cammy to DL?

It looks like Mike Cameron may be placed on the disabled list today or tomorrow. This move would have two benefits:

  1. It will give Cammy some time to rest his surgically-repaired wrist.
  2. It will allow the Mets to recall a starting pitching from AAA Norfolk (likely Aaron Heilman) to start on Saturday against the Braves instead of Jose Santiago.
The article at Mets.com indicates that Heilman could make three-or-four starts while Kris Benson remains on the disabled list with a sore pectoral muscle. Heilman was a #1 draft pick and was an absolutely dominant pitcher at Notre Dame. He has fallen apart as a pro, though. Here's hoping he gets another chance to turn it around.

Here are his stats from college:
