Mets | Will return to five-man rotation

The New York Mets will return to a five-man rotation after the All-Star break, and manager Terry Collins indicated that SPs Shaun Marcum, Jeremy Hefner and Dillon Gee aren't guaranteed to have spots in the rotation when that happens. Marcum's $4 million salary doesn't make him immune, especially with the way Gee has pitched lately. Hefner could be moved to the bullpen or optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. "When we get back to five guys, I think we're going to take the five guys that we think are the best to run out there every fifth day, and what gives us the best opportunity to win," Collins said.

Fantasy Tip: The odd-man out will probably come down to whichever pitcher is throwing the poorest when the time comes. The club might prefer to leave Marcum in the rotation since he has bonuses in his contract if he's pitching in relief. Stay tuned.
