Major League Baseball will independently review Mets pitcher Oliver Perez’s medical records, including the MRI Perez underwent Friday, a league official told the Daily News. The pitcher, who the team was hoping would accept a minor league assignment, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with patella tendinitis in his right knee Saturday.

“This could be 100 percent legitimate,” said the official, who noted that the league often takes that step when injuries are in need of clarification. “When there are questions, we look into it.”

Considering that it is common knowledge the Mets wanted Ollie off the roster, checking on this is probably not a bad idea.
