There’s been a lot of discussion in recent weeks over whether or not Eric Young’s performance is sustainable. While there are some worrisome albeit short samples of major league play that seem to indicate he is currently playing above his head, if you look back a bit more you may see a different player. Eric Young was drafted in the 33rd round by the Colorado Rockies in 2003 as a 5 ft 9 inch 170 […]
Small sample sizes be damned, but Eric Young has been going out of his way to display some of the talent that made this organization want to target him in the first place — and no, I’m not talking about the fact that he’s arbitration eligible. Picked up recently in a deal for Collin McHugh, who I can only wish the best to, Young has been tearing it up since his arrival in New York. […]
Aided by subtle changes to the roster and some apparent development on the part of some of the younger Mets, the Orange and Blue have stepped up their game recently in a most heartening way. Possibly spurred on by a lackluster style of play that seemingly reached its nadir with a run of 10 losses in 13 games following the surprising sweep of the Yankees, the Flushing brain trust may finally have found enough of […]
Mark Simon of ESPN New York had a great post on Sunday in which he ranked the Top 11 memorable Mets debuts over the team’s history. He included both pitching and hitting debuts. Check out his work and research here. (This is great for some of you younger Mets fans) I pulled the pitchers out of his list to see where Zack Wheeler might rank on this list. Here are the top five. Dick Rusteck (June […]
The Mets announced that they have acquired outfielder Eric Young Jr. from Colorado for RHP Collin McHugh. On Wednesday, the Rockies designated Young for assignment giving them 10 days to trade him. Young, 28, hit just .261 with a .671 OPS in 313 career games and is a .211 career hitter away from Coors Field. Young was hitting .246 on the season with one home run and eight stolen bases, but his defense was the subject […]
Forced to exercise a clause that would have prevented him from becoming a free agent, the Mets promoted right-hander Carlos Torres from Triple-A Las Vegas. To make room for him, the team optioned reliever Greg Burke to Vegas and designated Collin McHugh for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot. Torres, 30, exercised an opt-out in his contract Friday, giving the Mets 48 hours to promote him or release him. Torres is in the middle of a recent good stretch […]
Echoing what Terry Collins told reporters on Friday, Sandy Alderson told season ticket holders at Citi Field this morning, that Rafael Montero is a longshot to be promoted to the Mets this season. He cited an innings limit as the reason and said he’s currently about 70-80 innings away from being shutdown for the season. Last season, Montero tossed just 122 innings and he is already at 73.1 innings this year. Yesterday, Collins said that […]
Updated 6/8 at 12:55pm by Clayton Collier: The Mets have optioned RHP Collin McHugh to Triple-A Las Vegas and have called up reliever David Aardsma. He will wear number 30. To make room for Aardsma, Jeurys Familia has been moved to the 60-day disabled list. McHugh will pitch in Vegas as a starter. Original Post 6/8 at 8:58am by Joe D: According to Mark Hale of the New York Post the Mets plan to promote […]
In case you missed it, lefthander Jon Niese tossed 39 pitches yesterday, in a successful bullpen session at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. Niese said he had no problems, threw the ball free and easy, and was able to get his arm angle to where he wanted to. He does not foresee any after effects tomorrow and said he felt much better than his previous bullpens in between starts. “It was nice to throw a bullpen […]
