Mike Pelfrey and Jason Bay are two prominent targets among Citi Field boobirds, so it might be fitting they will be sidelined together.

The Mets placed both players on the disabled list yesterday after Pelfrey was diagnosed with what the team called swelling in his right elbow and an MRI exam revealed Bay has a non-displaced rib fracture.

According to a club source, initial tests indicated Pelfrey has a "small tear" in his right elbow, and the team wants him to receive a second opinion before deciding on a course of action. Pelfrey's MRI results are expected to be examined by noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in the coming days, at which time season-ending surgery might be recommended.
