Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Evan Chambers passed away in his sleep this past weekend as noted in a statement by Pirates GM Neal Huntington. The Pirates signed Chambers after selecting him in the 3rd round of the 2009 June Amateur draft from Hillsborough Community College (Tampa, FL.). He played in 5 seasons within the Pirates farm system, but he missed most of 2013 with a broken foot. Chambers was remembered around baseball, as well from some of […]
Update: The Mets added Steven Matz, Jeff Walters, Jake deGrom and Erik Goeddel to the 40-man roster. Kolarek, Dykstra and Gorski are at risk of being selected by another team. We’ll see… * * * * * * * * At midnight tonight, every team in the MLB is required to have their 40-man roster set, positioning themselves for next month’s Rule 5 draft. Players 18-and-under who signed their first professional contract in 2009 and players 19-and-over who signed their first […]
Is it me or is time flying this offseason? I can’t believe that the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft is already upon us. Tomorrow night at 11:59 PM EST is the deadline for adding players to the 40 Man Roster. I think the Mets are in great shape heading into decision day. With four spots currently open, that’s just enough to protect Steven Matz, Jeff Walters and Jacob deGrom with room […]
Mets outfield prospect Cory Vaughn is one of six players recently nominated for the Arizona Fall League’s annual Stenson award. Each year, every AFL manager selects a player from his squad to nominate for the award. All nine former award winners have gone on to play in the big leagues and last years recipient, Cole Kimball, is now with the Washington Nationals. According to an announcement made by MLB.com, the Dernell Stenson Sportsmanship Award pays tribute to the former Reds […]
I always thought that the Arizona Fall League was a place where teams sent their top prospects to play against the top prospects of other teams. The reasoning behind this is to get them playing against the best competition available, which would be beneficial to their development. In fact, on the AFL official website, it states “given the top prospects who play here, every game in the AFL is like a future All-Star Game. It’s […]
Adam Rubin reported earlier today that the Mets will not add more than a few prospects to the 40-man roster. There are already two prospects on the 40-man roster, including Juan Centeno and Matt den Dekker. That would ultimately leave four roster spots open on the 40-man. A few players that could be exposed to the Rule 5 Draft are Steven Matz, Cory Vaughn, Greg Peavey, Jacob deGrom, and Jeff Walters. This is interesting as it comes on the […]
With the deadline for the 40 man roster decisions looming, the Mets have many difficult decisions to make. One player the Mets will have to decide to protect is outfielder Cory Vaughn. Vaughn is a powerful right handed slugger who has been inconsistent throughout his minor league career. Despite his power potential, I believe Mets should not protect him on the 40 man roster. Vaughn has an impressive combination of power and speed, but he […]
Hansel Robles pitched for the Scottsdale Scorpions today and gave up four hits while striking out one while keeping the league-best Mesa Solar Sox scoreless in four innings. Chasen Bradford pitched one scoreless inning, giving up one hit in the 8th. No other Mets played today for the Scorpions. Stats for the Arizona Fall League Mets so far: Cory Vaughn 9 Games 9 for 38 .237 avg 4R, 2 3B, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 3/12 […]
The Mets 40-Man roster is now at 36 after the Angels claimed lefthander Robert Carson on waivers, the Dodgers grabbed outfielder Mike Baxter, and the team outrighted LHP Sean Henn and RHP Greg Burke. Expect more purging as the Mets must make room for Ike Davis, Josh Edgin, Matt Harvey, Jeremy Hefner, Jenrry Mejia, Bobby Parnell, Scott Rice and Johan Santana who must all be activated from 60-day disabled list and placed on the 40-man roster. So technically, the Mets now have 44 players which means four […]
