Herd grapevine: F-Mart on Mets' DL

---The Bisons were expecting a boost with the return of Argenis Reyes but he's been summoned back to New York because Fernando Martinez has been put on the DL with some inflammation of the knee. Hmmm. That's troubling. Following the pattern of other injured Mets and the way the team's medical staff has dealt with things, I'd fully expect some weird announcement in a few days that F-Mart is having surgery.

---Got a couple emails about last night's bizarre double play in the seventh inning at Coca-Cola Field. The Bisons actually ran into a double play after Jesus Feliciano stole second base because Cory Sullivan got into a rundown between third and home. Both Sullivan and Feliciano eventually ended up at third, with Scranton catcher P.J. Pilitierre tagging both and Feliciano getting ruled out. But Sullivan -- who had claim to the base as the lead runner -- stepped off the bag too and was quickly tagged for the inning's final out.

---Javier Castillo is batting .383 in a 12-game hitting streak that's one shy of Wily Mo Pena's season high of 13. He can tie Pena tonight in Pawtucket.

---Cory Sullivan got his average to .301 last night and has hit safely in 12 of his last 14 games. Bisons media relations maven Brad Bisbing points out Sullivan has not had back-to-back hitless games since May 8-9.
