Fortunato promoted, Maine DL'd, Smoltz to start

Bartolome Fortunato was promoted to the bigs today for seemingly a one day trip. Fortunato was promoted to give the Mets an extra arm after the 14 inning marathon last night.

In order for the Mets to make room for Fortunato the Mets placed starter John Maine on the 15 day Disabled List. Maine was originally expected to start Sunday, then he was a question mark, now it is all but official that Jose Lima will start.

With Jorge Sosa working 1.2 innings last night he will not be able to go in tommorow's series finale. Sosa was originally lined up to start, but now John Smoltz will pitch on three days rest. In Smoltz last start (Wednesday) he threw 109 pitches.
