New York Mets manager Willie Randolph told The New York Times that pitcher Orlando Hernandez will start Friday's game against the Florida Marlins. Randolph told the newspaper that Hernandez would not be on a pitch count.
Hernandez has not pitched since April 24 because of shoulder bursitis.
"Should be like a normal game for him," Randolph told the Times.
Hernandez is 2-1 this season with a 2.53 ERA. Hernandez made his Mets debut at Dolphin Stadium last season and he is 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in Miami.
