Shaun Marcum: Return Pushed Back
Update: Marcum (neck) did not throw his simulated game Tuesday as scheduled, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

Recommendation: Marcum would have been activated from the disabled list Sunday had he been able to get through Tuesday's session, but since he did not throw, his return will be pushed back, and the Mets will need to find another starter for Sunday's game. It's not clear how long the setback will delay Marcum's return, but Aaron Laffey appears to be the leading candidate to start in his place this weekend.
