El Duque strains calf, may miss start

ESPN is reporting that El Duque suffered a calf strain and may miss his start tomorrow.

Willie Randolph announced that Orlando Hernandez might not be able to make his start in Game 1 of the division series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Randolph said that Hernandez felt something in his right calf while running in the outfield Tuesday. Hernandez, who is 11-11 with a 4.66 ERA with the Mets and Arizona Diamondbacks this season, was scheduled to have an MRI exam this afternoon.

The Mets' postseason rotation is quickly becoming a mess.  I hope Heilman and Oliver are ready to pick up the pieces.
