Corbin is 9-0 with a 2.22 ERA, but he hasn't gotten a win since June 2, despite a 2.55 ERA in his last five outings.
The Mets' Jeremy Hefner pitched even better than Corbin in June, with a 1.80 ERA in five starts. But he also has been the victim of a lack of run support. Hefner is just 2-6 on the season, with a 3.72 ERA.
Tuesday's news reports
• Who needs Ike Davis? Josh Satin continues to produce at the plate -- he had three more hits Monday, and is batting .444 (12-for-27) in his past seven games. (Davis, meanwhile, was 0-for-5 with three strikeouts with Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.)

• Shortstop Omar Quintanilla also had three hits Monday. Ruben Tejada is headed to Triple-A to continue his rehab, but Terry Collins said Tejada will have to prove he belongs in the big leagues and to play ahead of Quintanilla.
• John Buck, on the other hand, went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Monday, and made a base-running gaffe in the bottom of the ninth inning. Buck's batting average is down to .205, but it doesn't sound like his playing time will decline.
• From the bloggers ... MetsMinors.net points out that Cesar Puello had a historic month in June, and is in elite company in the Eastern League. ... Could Sandy Alderson lure Tony La Russa and Dave Duncan to Queens? Read more at the Eddie Kranepool Society.
