Mets | Hoping Shaun Marcum can return quickly

The New York Mets believe that they can have SP Shaun Marcum (neck) ready relatively quickly after he's eligible to return from the disabled list. He is scheduled to throw two innings in a simulated game in a few days. Marcum will need to ramp up to five innings and possibly throw in a rehab game in Florida before returning.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets may try to rush Marcum back because of their lack of other attractive starting pitching options. There's no guarantee he'll be back soon, however, since he'll need plenty of outings to be up to full speed, assuming he has no setbacks. If he does come back quickly, it probably wouldn't be wise to rely on him in your fantasy rotation that soon.
