I thought it was funny that after I wrote how Nieuwenhuis’ second home run on Tuesday would have been gone in any MLB park, that Terry Collins asked Wally Backman about Kirk’s home runs and said the following to reporters before last night’s game. “I talked to Wally today for quite a while,” Collins said. “He said they were legitimate. He didn’t care where he was playing, they were homers.” Backman also told Collins that […]
It was not the best of starts for Zack Wheeler on Memorial Day, as he struggled throughout most of the game to find his command and was not exactly helped by his defense much either. Wheeler lasted merely four innings in his second start back from the DL against Salt Lake – after he looked a little rusty in his last go-around. He allowed four hits, two of which were home runs, and three walks […]
Mets Minors Report 5/15: Wheeler Update, Bowman/Ynoa/Verrett All Effective, De La Cruz On A Hot Streak
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped a game to Albuquerque, 8-5. Binghamton took down Akron, 7-3. St. Lucie one-hit Brevard County, 4-0. Savannah lost via walk-off, 4-3. Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler‘s MRI is not worrying me as much as it should. Mitch detailed some concerns with the inverted W delivery that he employs yesterday and how it can weaken a shoulder – but I think I’m just hoping for the best here. Wheeler has […]
St. Lucie 4, Brevard County 0 Matt Bowman and T.J. Chism combined for a one-hit shutout as the Mets cruised past the Brevard County Manatees 4-0 on Tuesday at Tradition Field. Bowman (2-0) pitched seven scoreless innings and allowed just one hit while striking out nine and walking one. Bowman retired the final 12 batters he faced and retired the side in order five times. He allowed just a two-out single to Manatees centerfielder Chadwin […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas dropped to Albuquerque, 5-2. Binghamton topped Akron, 5-3. St. Lucie dropped to Brevard County, 6-5. Savannah lost to Charleston, 5-3. Injury News The Wheeler Watch has taken a turn…hopefully not for the worst. Adam Rubin has reported that Zack Wheeler will miss his next start due to discomfort in his clavicle, and is flying to NY to meet with doctors. I’m not an injury expert, but I do […]
The minor league season kicks off this evening for all of the Mets minor league affiliates, aside from the short season teams (Kingsport and Brooklyn), which kick their seasons off in June. Here are some brief previews for tonight’s Opening Day games: Las Vegas 51s vs. Sacramento River Cats Location: Raley Field, Sacramento Time: 10:05 PM Zack Wheeler takes the hill for the 51s in tonight’s matchup, and Travis d’Arnaud will be behind the plate. The projected […]
Updated 3/22 I wanted to share Adam Rubin’s projected Opening Day roster which is not too dissimilar to what I projected. Rotation: Jon Niese, Shaun Marcum, Matt Harvey, Dillon Gee and Jeremy Hefner. Bullpen: Bobby Parnell, Brandon Lyon, LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Atchison, Josh Edgin, Pedro Feliciano and Greg Burke. Infield: Ike Davis, Justin Turner, David Wright, Ruben Tejada and John Buck. Outfield: Lucas Duda, Collin Cowgill and Jordany Valdespin. Bench: Marlon Byrd, Mike Baxter, Anthony Recker, Omar Quintanilla […]
A few years from now, or perhaps in July, this battery could be a big deal. Matt Harvey and Travis d’Arnaud represent the Mets’ future, and today they provided a glimpse. Harvey, already in the rotation, gave up two runs in 5.1 innings and was backed by two hits and two runs scored by d’Arnaud in a 3-2 victory today over St. Louis. In an 80-pitch effort, of which 54 were strikes, Harvey struck out six and […]
Over at NJ.com, the online home of the Star-Ledger, Jorge Castillo tells us that during the offseason, Mets manager Terry Collins, personally called infielders Justin Turner, Josh Satin, Zach Lutz and Brandon Hicks to give them all the same piece of advice – be prepared to play some corner outfield. As far as any experience either of the four have roaming the green pastures, it’s almost nil. Once upon a time, months after he was […]
