could use a sturdier table for these pressers Mike

Rhine Jive Click Bait (Hadrian VIII), Tuesday, 6 March 2018 20:52 (one year ago) link

that includes minor league pitchers as well.

...Including De Leon (who hasn’t actually undergone the procedure yet), the Rays’ total of 10 surgeries in that span is the majors’ lowest, less than one-third that of the MLB-leading Mets — who, to be fair, haven’t had a pitcher above A-ball suffer that fate since 2015. Even so, using the start of 2016 as a cutoff, the Mets organization’s six TJs, though all from the low minors, place them third among the 30 teams, behind the Giants’ eight and the Reds’ seven. No other team has more than three, which is where the Rays will sit once De Leon goes under the knife.

that is crazy

Yoenis Cespedes says his right wrist injury occurred while swinging in last Tuesday's game, one week ago. He's played three times since then, but underwent x-rays this morning. The Mets cut off his interview after 90 seconds so there's no additional info right now.

mets cannot help but mets

also david wright has died again

mookieproof, Tuesday, 13 March 2018 16:24 (one year ago) link

Yeah the news on Wright is upsetting. 8 more weeks of non baseball activity.

I think Cespedes will be fine? Also Nimmo has been really good this spring, may be hard to send him back down to AAA when Conforto is back. If 1B is not working out, could shift Bruce over there.

no one expects a Wright comeback, do they

If they put Montero on waivers, would anyone else want him? Same with Robles. Kind of feel the Mets should risk it, it seems like every other pitcher in the running has been better/more auspicious than them this spring.

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 15 March 2018 17:51 (one year ago) link

wouldn't really call that a 'risk'. he's 27 and terrible and there's nothing to be gained by wasting a 25-man roster spot on him in the hopes that he someday figures it out

Jason Vargas has a fracture in his glove hand after taking a comebacker. Rub dirt on it.

Montero has torn his UCL and will be out all year, so I guess that answers that nagging question for now.

Michael F Gill, Thursday, 22 March 2018 17:35 (one year ago) link

icymi, Zack Wheeler was optioned to Vegas; Seth Lugo in the opening rotation.

Phillip Evans made the roster as a utility infielder.

Super enjoying this team so far. Lugo and Gsellman in the bullpen has been quite a weapon. Can't wait to see more of Rosario (despite the wild free swinging) & Nimmo.

scorpion postmortem

Noah Syndergaard throws a four-hitter in Game 162. The Mets won consecutive 1-0 games over the Marlins to end things.

They went 31-20 over their last 51 games -- a bandage over a bullet hole, perhaps, but enough for the Mets to enter the offseason with optimism.

Noah Syndergaard is heading to Ireland, where he will guest star in an episode of the @HISTORY drama "Vikings." Syndergaard will play the character Thorbjorn, a Viking warrior who is loyal to Ivar the Boneless.

ivar the boneless would be a good addition to the mets. seems less likely to get injured, what with his having no bones and all.

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- New York Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow has earned a promotion to Triple-A Syracuse.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback hit .273 with six homers and 36 RBIs in 84 games this year for Double-A Binghamton. His season was cut short by a broken hamate bone in his right hand, which required surgery July 24.

"Timmy is not a guy you want to put restraints on," new Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Wednesday. "If he sees a block, he's going to work that much harder to go overcome whatever somebody places on him. I believe in him."

Before he was hired by the Mets last week, Van Wagenen worked at CAA Baseball and represented the 31-year-old outfielder.

Tebow hit .301 in June for Binghamton and .340 in 15 games in July.

"Given the hamate injury he had last year, his momentum was stopped," Van Wagenen said. "The goal is if he can pick that up in spring training and hopefully get off to a good start in Syracuse, then we'll evaluate it when he's ready."

Tebow signed with Mets in late 2016, played in the Arizona Fall League and in 2017 hit .226 with eight homers and 52 RBIs in 126 games at two levels of Class A. He played in seven games for the Mets in spring training this year, hitting .056 (1-for-18).
