Before the tonight's game John Maine pitched from the mound for 10 pitches.
Maine is totally determined to help the Mets in a relief mode sometime before the end of the year.
After the 10 pitch effort he said he only felt a little knot in his arm which he expect to work it out with more work . Of course no time table has been set.
John is expected to pitch a simulated game this weekend in Atlanta and could be activated when the Mets return home to Shea to face the Cubs.
