Today’s lineup vs. Braves

REYES: Out of the lineup.

What do you know, Jose Reyes is out of the lineup this afternoon after aggravating his oblique injury. You saw this one coming a mile away.

Ike Davis, 1B

Jeff Francoeur, RF

Chris Carter, LF

Rod Barajas, C

Ruben Tejada, 2B

Johan Santana, LP

Tonight’s lineup vs. Marlins; Pagan out again.

Angel Pagan still has some soreness in his right side that makes it uncomfortable to hit left-handed. That’s why Jesus Feliciano pinch-hit for him last night and was in center field on the game winning hit, and why he’s not in the lineup tonight against righty Chris Volstad.

Here’s tonight’s lineup vs. Marlins:

Jose Reyes, SS

Jesus Feliciano, CF

David Wright, 3B

Ike Davis, 1B

Jason Bay, LF

Chris Carter, RF

Rod Barajas, C

Alex Cora, 2B

Mike Pelfrey, RP
