New York Mets pitcher Tylor Megill to begin rehab

LOS ANGELES- The New York Mets should soon have a key part of their rotation back from the injured list.

Right-handed starter Tylor Megill (tendonitis in his biceps) will begin a rehab assignment on Sunday for Double A Binghamton, manager Buck Showalter said ahead of Game 2 of the series between the Mets and Dodgers on Friday.

Megill faced live batters on Tuesday, before kicking off a bullpen session three days later. Showalter said Megill came out of Friday’s BP feeling fine, which led to the decision to schedule his start of rehabilitation for Sunday.

Showalter said the Mets will wait to determine if Megill will need an additional rehab outing before joining the big league rotation. The aim is for the 26-year-old to stretch four innings this weekend in what will be his first live game action since May 11. If Megill only needs one rehab start, he could potentially meet the Mets on their way to the West Coast. trip and take the hill against the Anaheim Angels next weekend. That will likely depend on how Sunday’s start goes for Megill.
