Mets CF Pagan homers in 1st rehab game

Mets center fielder Angel Pagan has homered in his first minor

league rehab game for Class-A St. Lucie.

Pagan, on the disabled list since April 22 with a strained

muscle on his left side, played seven innings in center Wednesday

night against Tampa. He went 1 for 3 with a walk.

New York manager Terry Collins says Pagan needs to play four

consecutive rehab games before being activated.

Collins said first baseman Ike Davis (left ankle) might not be

ready to return from the DL as soon as he’s eligible on May 26.

Also, reliever Bobby Parnell threw a scoreless inning for

Triple-A Buffalo against Indianapolis. He allowed two hits and

struck out one. He is on the DL with a circulatory problem in the

middle finger on his pitching hand.
